Mrs. Catherine Semancik - Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten!

My name is Catherine Semancik and I am so excited to join the Prestwick Team this year!  My husband Sean and I have lived in Little Elm for 16 years and we have 3 boys who have attended Prestwick since it opened.  Our oldest will be in 9th Grade and we have twins in 6th Grade. We LOVE Prestwick and I am confident that you will too!

This will be my 11th year teaching.  Prior to joining the Kindergarten Team at Prestwick, I taught Pre-Kindergarten at Friends In Christ Preschool in Frisco and at Cross Oaks Elementary in Denton ISD. I also had the opportunity to be a substitute in LEISD and to work with the Special Education Inclusion Team at Lakeview Elementary, Grades 2-5.  I love teaching our young learners and feel it is so important to not only teach them how to be good students but also to help them be good citizens of the classroom and of the world. 

I am looking forward to a great year in Kindergarten!

Please feel free to reach me via e-mail at or via phone at 972-947-9450 before or after school or during school from 11:05-12:00 on MWF and 11:26-12:15 on TTh.  No question is too small, so please do not hesitate to ask for help or clarification at any time. 

Have a blessed day!
