Mrs. Catherine DeShaw

Hello!  This is my fifteenth year of teaching and am happy to be teaching all English 6 this year.  I taught my first three years in Clear Creek ISD in Houston area, and this is my twelth 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.
