My Credentials:
Hi, I am Cathy Dudley. I am a music teacher at McDougle Elementary. 2018/2019 will be my 25th year of teaching elementary school music. This will be my thirteenth year at McDougle. I received a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in Indiana (1982). I earned a Master of Music degree in Music Education and Kodaly Certification from the University of Houston (1988). I enjoy teaching music to your children.

A Little Bit About Me:
I grew up in Northwest Indiana, just 30 minutes from downtown Chicago, IL. I moved to Houston in 1984. I love football! Okay, and, of course, music. My favorite NFC team: The Chicago Bears; my favorite AFC team: The Houston Texans. Let's hope for a better season than last year - "Go Bears!" and "Go Texans!" Hoping for a Bear/Texans Super Bowl!

Love every sport, actually...So, right now, Go Astros! & Go Cubs!

A Little Bit About My Family:

I am married with two daughters. I "interrupted" my teaching career after the birth of my first child, Leighann. I did the next best thing, I became a stay-at-home mom. I taught early childhood/pre-school music for five years at the same school that my daughters attended. I volunteer...ALOT. I was the Benfer Elementary Music Appreciation Coordinator for six years. Volunteering for KISD doesn't stop when you're kids are out of elementary school. I have logged many volunteer hours at Strack & KCHS, too...Volunteering at your kid's schools does not stop until you're kids have graduated from high school!

My Daughters:
Leighann is 26 years old. She lives in N.Y.C. & is working on Broadway.
Rebecca is 21 years old. She is her fourth year at Texas A&M University. Becca's majoring in Bio-Medical Engineering.
Leighann & Rebecca joined choir when they were in 4th grade at Benfer Elementary. They never quit! They were in choir while they attended Strack Intermediate & Klein Collins High School...and, they are still singing!

Also, both of my daughters love football! "Yes!"

Our Kitty:
We have an adorable black and white cat, Kitty. She is 11 years old. Kitty loves to sit around. We think that Kitty loves football, too; because she watches the games with us. Who knows for sure?
