Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Cathleen Case
As the 2017-18 school year starts, I will have been teaching at HPHS for my entire career except for one year at another area high school. I live in the District 113 community, my husband also teaches at HPHS, my son and twin daughters graduated from Deerfield High School in 2013 and 2017 respectively.
I have taught much of the curriculum in the HPHS English Department, every level and every age. This year, I will be team teaching Freshman Studies with Ms. Kate Straka, team teaching senior year Contemporary Literature FLEX with Mr. Steve Morris, and teaching regular Contemporary Literature. Every year is full of new adventures and new learning for me, and I hope, for my new students!
I also have been fortunate to advise the student newspaper, Shoreline, assist in the sponsorship of the literary magazine Sojourn, and co-lead the Girl Up club as we move into its third year. I hope my students will consider joining any of these extra curriculars as all are welcome!
Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!
I created a Google Classroom for each of my classes this year; please use the links on this page to access your Google Classroom for daily summaries, reminders about assignments, and copies of handouts.
Students are expected to check the Google Classroom daily!
