Cathryne Efron

HI, I am Cathy Efron!  6th, 7th and 8th Grade GT-ELAR Teacher at Garner Middle School beginning my 11th year for NEISD. This year, I will be the Debate Teacher for Garner as well.  

I am proud to be a North East Graduate!  I attended Bradley Middle School, graduated from MacArthur High School and The University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor's degree in English.  Go Longhorns!  I also have my master's degree in Educational Leadership from UTSA.  I taught English at Wood Middle School and am so very happy to be teaching GT English and Reading at Garner! 

Your children will learn to love READING and WRITING in my class as well as take away important strategies, increase their vocabularies, improve their fluency and appreciate literature.  These are very important tools which can be used in every subject area and will be an important part of their success in highschool and college!

The learning environment for your child is a combination of both home and school.  I look forward to this joint venture. Together we can make a difference.
