Mrs. Kathy Watson


Dear students and families, 

Welcome to the 5th grade! I’m very excited about having you in my class this year. 

I would like to take this time to introduce myself to you and your family. My name is Katherine Watson. I have 28 years teaching experience at the 5th-8th grade level. My husband, Scott, and I live at Nocona Hills with our 3 dogs and 1 cat! We also have 3 children and 9 grandchildren. I was born and raised in Texas and my husband is from Oklahoma. I’m an avid golfer and love all outdoor sports. 

I graduated from Midwestern State University in 1988 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I began my teaching career in 1988 at Petrolia ISD but then retired in 2012 due to health reasons.  Once my health improved, I pursued another Bachelor’s Degree in Radiologic Technology and graduated from Midwestern State University in 2016. I worked in Radiology and later became the Director of Human Resources at CCMH in Henrietta, Texas for 2 1/2 years.

Because of my love for our children, and my passion for teaching, I’m excited to say that I'm back in the classroom doing what I love!

If you should have any questions or concerns, or would like to schedule a conference, please contact me at kwatson@gainesvilleisd.org. I normally check my email twice a day and will get back to you as soon as I can. 

Thank you for the opportunity to share your child with me this school year! I'm looking forward to a very productive and successful year!!
