Mrs. Catherine Wrixon- Middle School Science
Greetings, my name is Catherine Assenmacher and I will be joining the MCES family for the 2017-2018 school year. I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade science. I graduated from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in December of 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, with an endorsement in Integrated Science. Following graduation, I was an instructional assistant in Lincoln Park Schools, working with struggling elementary readers. In September 2015, I was hired at a charter school in Redford where I taught 6th grade math and science. Last school year, I remained in Redford, moving into a 5th grade classroom to teach ELA and social studies. I was baptized, received First Communion, and Confirmation through St. Sebastian Parish in Dearborn Heights. After Confirmation, I began to stray from my faith. I searched through other churches, before coming back home to the Catholic faith. In 2015, I became a member of Sacred Heart Parish in Dearborn. Last fall I signed up to volunteer in my first ministry, and am now a proud member of the Ministry of Welcome (also known as the Usher’s Club). On August 4th, 2017 I will be getting married. Afterwards, I will be known as Mrs. Wrixon. I look forward to the coming school year and being a part of the MCES family!
