Hello! My name is Catherine Philley and I'll be teaching 2nd grade this year! I'm so proud to be part of such a wonderful team of educators, administrators, students and families.
I was born in Denton, Texas, but grew up in North East New Jersey. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master's Degree in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. I hold teaching certifications in both Texas and New Jersey, minored in Women's Studies and am ESL Certified.
I have been teaching for 14 years. I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades. For the past two years I taught 1st grade in Garland ISD.
I enjoy cooking, listening to music, spending time with my family, and taking my dog Sarge to play at the park!
Looking forward to a great school year, with many more to come!
