About Ms. Mewhirter

Hello Panther Friends! I am ready for a wonderful year at the beautiful, brand new U. P. I grew up in Irving and graduated from Irving High School.  I went to undergrad at Texas Tech University (Go Red Raiders!) and received my master’s degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Reading from The University of North Texas.  This will be my 14th year at U.P. and my 34th year of teaching.


Fun Fact: I have family in every time zone! I love to visit my family in Portland, Denver, and Washington D.C. I enjoy traveling, walking the Katy Trail, and spending time with family and friends..


I enjoy building relationships with my kids and helping them reach their full potential in the classroom and the community.  I can’t wait to see all of the growth in my first grade students. It’s going to be a fabulous year!
