About the Teacher
My name is Cassidy St. John. I have the honor of being your child's third grade Reading, English Language Arts, and Social Studies teacher. I graduated Cum Laude from Texas Tech University through their Tech Teach program. This is my fifth year in education. I have spent the past three years teaching second grade as a self contained instructor. Last year, I was on a curriculum writing committee for language arts 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 a parrotlet named Aero.
My favorite candies are KitKat and 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, 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!
