Mrs. Catherine Semancik - 1st Grade

Welcome to 1st Grade!

My name is Catherine Semancik and I am so excited to be st Prestwick!  My husband Sean and I have lived in Little Elm for 17 years and we have 3 boys.  Our oldest will be a Sophomore and we have twins in 7th Grade at Strike Middle School. We LOVE Prestwick and I am confident that you will too!

This will be my 12th year teaching.  Prior to joining the Prestwick Team, 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 1st Grade!

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 1:41-2:36.  No question is too small, so please do not hesitate to ask for help or clarification at any time. 

Have a blessed day!

Catherine Semancik
