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. 🙂
