Fifth Grade HR / 4th & 5th English Language Arts Teacher
I am the 4th and 5th grade Reading, Writing, and Social Studies teacher at All Saints Catholic School. This will be my 33rd year as an educator. In my first 10 years I taught 4th and 5th grade, my next 10 years I was an elementary principal, and my last 10 years I was a secondary principal. I retired from public school and happily became a 4th and 5th grade teacher at ASCS three years ago. I have come full circle and love being back in the classroom again!
I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, with a minor in Mathematics, from the University of North Texas. I earned my masters degree in Administration, with a minor in Curriculum and Instruction, from Texas Woman’s University. I completed an additional 66 hours in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of North Texas.
I am married to Steve Whiffen, who is also an educator. I have 4 children, 2 step children, and 10 grandchildren. I wish to be the kind of teacher I would hope to have for my own grandchildren. I am passionate about inspiring others to learn and grow both academically and spiritually.
