My name is Kate Forisha, and I am excited to be the Shepard Elementary Assistant Principal for the 2018-2019 school year! I have heard many great things about Shepard and how the members of the community truly care for each other!
I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas, so the desert will always feel like home to me. I attended Trinity University from 2002-2007, where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Studies and a Master of Arts in Teaching. I taught high school geography for 6 years at Johnson High School in San Antonio. Since moving to the DFW area in 2013, I have taught in both Coppell ISD and Plano ISD. Most recently, I have worked as the Social Emotional Learning Teacher Leader at Meadows Elementary School. I have been married to my fabulous husband, Stephen, for 7 years and we have one son, Jackson who will be 3 in October. We are also expecting our second son the Friday before Thanksgiving, so it will be a busy year for me, and I cannot wait to share the holiday season with 2 little ones!
