About the Teacher

  • My name is Cassidy St. John. I have the honor of being your child's fifth grade Reading and English Language Arts teacher. I graduated Cum Laude from Texas Tech University through their Tech Teach program. I am currently pursuing my Masters degree through Johns Hopkins Univeristy. This is my seventh year in education.  In the past, I have taught second grade as a self contained instructor as well as third and fourth grade within the English, Language Arts department.  I have served on the curriculum writing committee for language arts, in my previous district, and I am excited to focus my efforts towards helping this group of young people develop skills for meaningful writing and deep thinking. 

  • Fun Facts:

    The weirdest pet I've owned was a giant tortoise.

    I've also owned white bellied tree frogs, red eared sliders, a barred tiger salamander, hamsters, fish, hermit crabs, and a cockatiel. Dogs go without mentioning.

    The natural wonder I want to see most is the Aurora Borealis.

  • What I'm Reading

    (For Parents)

    I personally prefer historical fiction. I also enjoy science and fantasy fiction. 

    I just finished reading Kristin Hannah's "The Nightingale." It was so good I finished it in three days. I could not put it down. 

    I am currently reading Janet Beard's "The Atomic City Girls." I'm still in the character development stages of the novel. I will update this page once I finish it. 

    I love to hear suggestions for new books. If anyone has a suggestion, please share!
