Mrs. Catherine Polk

After graduating from Trinity University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing and a double-major in English, I continued my education at Trinity through the Master of Arts in Teaching program. This program has allowed me to delve into the philosophy, theory, and strategies behind the science of teaching. During my M.A.T. year, I interned right here at ISA with the senior team, working closely with Melanie Anderson in AP English IV. Upon completion of my Masters degree, I joined the ISA community as the AP English III Language and Composition teacher in 2016, and spent two years with the ISA Junior Team. This will be my 3rd year at ISA, and my 1st year teaching English and Social Studies electives. 

My goal for my students is to explore personal perspectives, as well as the perspectives of others, so that when they graduate from the hallowed halls of ISA, they enter the world as critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and effective writers. 

I look forward to collaborating with students, families, and the ISA community as we embark on an action-packed year at ISA!
