Mrs. Cathy Kirby

My name is Cathy Kirby and I am thrilled to return for another fabulous year at Walker!  I graduated from Texas Christian University with a Bachelor of Science in Education in May 1997.  In my 25 years as an educator, I have been fortunate to teach a variety of age groups.  As a classroom teacher, I have worked with students from kindergarten up to 5th grade.  I have also served as a campus gifted and talented specialist working with students from kindergarten to 5th grade.  My dream to teach middle school ELAR was finally realized during the 2020-2021 school year! 

I live in Lewisville with my husband, Brett, and our son, Sam, who is going into 11th grade.  As the youngest of six children, I have a large extended family and we spend as much time together as possible.  It's usually loud when we're all together but almost always fun!  Outside of school, I enjoy reading, music, and keeping up with TCU athletics, particularly football.  Go Frogs!  

I truly look forward to sharing my passion for language arts with my students as I have been an avid reader pretty much since I could physically hold a book on my own.  Reading opens doors to information, ideas, and other worlds that can enrich our lives beyond measure.  I also seek to help each student grow as a writer so they can feel confident enough to share their ideas and make their voice heard, even when they don't want to speak out loud.
