Mrs. Cathy Tran grew up in Dallas, earning a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood at Texas Woman’s University. She also holds professional certification for EC-6th Grade. Cathy brings 20+ years of teaching experience from PK-3 through 3rd grade, most recently as a PK-3 teacher this past year at a similar private institution as Saint Theresa Catholic School. Ms. Tran’s prior teaching engagements include Dallas, Alief, Katy, and Royal Independent School Districts, First Steps Preschool, and Lutheran Westlake Preparatory. In her spare time, Cathy enjoys gardening and cooking. She derives great joy from teaching young children because of their curiosity, especially their wonder of nature as they learn about Creation. She marvels at her students’ creativity and their hard work, and revels in their laughter as they grow into the fine young people God intends them to be. She is delighted to be joining the STCS team and feels truly called to be a part of the Saint Theresa family this year. She is looking very forward to a great and successful year learning, teaching, and growing together with us and our students.
