Welcome home Warriors! I am looking forward to an amazing school year with you all.

All About Mrs. Cassidy:

I graduated from New Jersey City University with a BA in English.

I received my Teacher Certificate from Felician University.  I hold NJ Certification for grades K-12 with a specialization in Language Arts for grade 5-12.

Fun Fact: I have taught every grade from Pre-K 12 except 5th.

I have an 8 year old daughter named Laila who LOVES coming to visit my students.  Hopefully this year she will be able to do that.

I LOVE to read.  My favorite types of books are psychological thrillers and any type of YA novel.  I spent most of my summer reading books for our classroom library. 🙂
