Hello and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year in 1st Grade!
My name is Catherine Underwood and this is my 15th year teaching for the 2018-2019 school year! I have 3 children of my own, Lindsay, who is at Allen High School in 10th grade, Landon, who is at Ford Midddle School in 7th grade, and my youngest, Lily, who is a 2nd grader at Preston! We have been able to call Allen home for 14 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 as well 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, reading a good book and going camping when time allows for us to go together! This summer in 2018, we went to Galveston, TX and enjoyed time swimming at the beach and getting to explore Galveston and its deep history it holds!
I am so excited to be at Preston and I am looking forward to a wonderful and fun year in 1st grade!
