Hi, my name is Catherine Graff. I was Catherine Underwood until recently, when I got married in October 2022! This is my 19th year teaching for the 2022-2023 school year, my 7th year teaching at AllenISD, and I am so proud to teach art again this year. It is truly a dream come true for me to teach Art!
I have 3 children of my own: Lindsay, who is attending Texas Tech University this year as a sophomore, Landon, who is a high school junior this year in Frisco, and my youngest, Lily, who is in 6th grade at Preston! I also have 2 awesome bonus sons, Sam, who is 12 in 7th grade, and Seth, who is 15 in 9th grade, both in FriscoISD. I am a sixth generation Texan, grew up in Plano, and graduated from Plano East Senior High School in the 90s. I graduated with Honors from Texas Tech University (Wreck 'Em!) with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.
I enjoy spending time outdoors in my spare time, painting on canvas or fixing up just about anything that could use a good face lift, watching Netflix, traveling all over, and reading the latest good book. This past summer 2022, we went to Las Vegas, NV and North Carolina! We enjoyed some fun in Las Vegas (I had never been before!) and seeing many wonderful sites in North Carolina (including the Biltmore Estate).
I am so excited to be at Preston again for my 6th wonderful year and this time in the ART Room once again!
