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.
My favorite color is lime green though teal is a close second.
My favorite animals are birds. I have two parrotlets named Aero and Sprout.
My favorite candies are sour gummy worms.
My favorite hobby is painting.
My favorite place to visit is the zoo... or the bookstore.
I played piano as a child.
I was in choir from third grade through my senior year of high school.
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
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!
