Superintendent, Dr. Gregg Weiss, appoints Catherine Whitehead as the new Director of Elementary Curriculum

Superintendent, Dr. Gregg Weiss, appoints Catherine Whitehead as the new Director of Elementary Curriculum. Mrs. Whited started at Silsbee ISD in 2019.

As Elementary Curriculum Director, she will be working directly with the teachers, administrators, and the instructional coordinator. Together they will ensure that the curriculum and instruction delivered in the classroom is not only specific to the state standards, but also engaging to the students, and differentiated for students to access the materials.

" ‘Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.’ - John Kennedy. In my leadership roles, I find that I am always learning. This transition to my new position will be no different. I look forward to not only lead in my new role but learn from those I will be working with. This includes administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, students, and families,” said Catie Whitehead, Director of Elementary Curriculum.

When she started in 2019, she served as Math/Science Instructional Coach, District Testing Coordinator, Director of State, Federal, and Special Programs. 

Mrs. Whitehead has been working in Curriculum Supervision since 2014, having previously held teaching positions in both Silsbee and Beaumont ISD.

“My Educational Leadership Philosophy is that I believe in bringing a community together to share a unified vision for schools and the students and families they serve. Our responsibility is to provide a safe environment for which all students can learn and flourish to reach their full potential,” said Mrs. Whitehead.

We are thrilled to have Mrs. Whitehead in this role and cannot wait to see the continued growth and success at Silsbee ISD.
