Miss Caitlin Gipson
Hi my name is Caitlin Gipson, and this will be my third year teaching at Dodd Elementary! 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 a fourth and fifth grade classroom. I graduated from UNT in May of 2016 with a Bachelors in Interdisplinary Studies with a specialization in ESL. I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership in August of 2018.
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 countires, and my list is still growing!
