Mrs. Catherine DeShaw
Hello! I am entering my fourteenth year of teaching and am happy to be teaching AVID 7, AVID 8, and ELA 6 this year. I taught my first three years in Clear Creek ISD in Houston area, and this is my eleventh year in Plano ISD and at Schimelpfenig Middle School. I love our school and I love middle school students! I feel that I am able to bring out the best in each of my students!
I grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station with a B.A. in English with an emphasis in education. I speak some spanish and love any opportunity to practice the language and keep up my skills. My husband and I live in Dallas and he is is an Optometrist in Garland. My favorite activities are gardening, organization and house projects, fitness, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family.
