Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Catherine Foxworth
I am Catherine Foxworth, and I teach third grade at Odell Elementary. This is my fifteenth year teaching, and my third year teaching for Cabarrus County Schools. I have a BA in English from Kennesaw State University, and a graduate degree from UNCC. I have taught in both charter schools and public schools, mostly third or fourth grade. I teach all core subjects here, but I have also taught departmentalized math for several years. Now I am fortunate to be working at Odell Elementary, with the rock-star educators that teach here!
I actually live in South Carolina, but enjoy being here so much that it is worth the commute. I am an "empty-nester" with two grown, married children and one recently-graduated senior. This February, I became a grandmother to a beautiful baby girl, who I am enjoying more than I ever could have imagined! I also like to read, cook, and garden.
Working with children is just one of the things about which I am passionate. From April to October, I serve as a volunteer for the CMPD Animal Control Center in their neonatal kitten nursery. I also foster baby kittens until they are old enough to go to a home of their own, and often work with sick kittens that need extra care. I am also working towards earning my digital badge in Global Education, so I have been including extra activities in my classroom throughout the school year with a global awareness component. This past summer I presented a course at a Global Educators Conference for Cabarrus County, and have had the opportunity to attend special conferences held by WorldView.
