Mrs. Catherine Semancik - 2nd Grade

Welcome to 2nd Grade!

My name is Catherine Semancik and this is my 5th year teaching at Prestwick where I have taught Kindergarten, 1st Grade and now 2nd Grade. This will be my 14th year teaching!  Prior to joining the Prestwick Team, I taught Pre-K in Frisco and Denton ISD. I have also worked with the Special Education Team at Lakeview Elementary, Grades 2-5 and have been a substitute in LEISD.  

My husband Sean and I have 3 boys.  Our oldest will be a Senior and our twins will be Freshmen at Little Elm High School. 

I am looking forward to a great year in 2nd Grade!

Please feel free to reach me via e-mail at or leave me a voicemail at 972-947-9450 and I will return your call.  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
