Hello and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year in 1st Grade!
My name is Catherine Underwood and this is my 16th year teaching for the 2019-2020 school year! I have 3 children of my own, Lindsay, who is at Allen High School in 11th grade, Landon, who is at Ford Midddle School in 8th grade, and my youngest, Lily, who is a 3rd grader at Preston! We have been able to call Allen home for 15 years now and just love it!
I grew up in Plano, Texas and gradutaed from Plano East Senior High School. I graduated from college from Texas Tech University and I'm a real Red Raider at heart! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and some graduate school in Library Sciences. I come from a true teacher family where my mother and grandmother were both teachers too, so teaching is in my blood!
I enjoy spending time outdoors in my spare time, watching a good movie with my family, traveling, reading a good book and going camping when time allows for us to go together! This summer in 2019, we went to the state of Maine and visted our family home up there that's been in our family for over 100 years! We enjoyed time swimming at the lake, white water rafting, climbing a mountain and spending time with our family eating some lobsta' together.
I am so excited to be at Preston for another great year and I am looking forward to a wonderful year in 1st grade!
