Mrs. Caitlin (Gipson) Stives
Hi, my name is Caitlin Stives, and this will be my second year teaching at Wylie East! I am Wylie born and bred. I started kindergarten at Akin and graduated from Wylie East in 2013. After high school, I attended the University of North Texas because of their student teaching partnership with Wylie ISD. I student taught for a year at Akin Elementary and Harrison Intermediate. I also student taught in Seville, Spain for six weeks in fourth and fifth-grade classrooms. I graduated from UNT in May of 2016 with a Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in ESL. I earned my Master's degree in Educational Leadership in August of 2018. I began teaching in 2016 at Dodd Elementary where I taught fourth grade for three years. Now, I'm back at Wylie East! I teach English II and coach the WEHS JV Cheer Squad.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading. I never leave home without a book! My favorites include Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I also love to play with my Australian Shepherd, Zola. During summer and spring break, I am always trying to visit new places. I've been to 18 countries, and my list is still growing!
Feel free to contact me at any time!
