  • 6th Grade Math Teacher

    Casady School is in an exciting phase of growth and evolution as a school. Notably, Casady has spent the past two years working collaboratively to develop a Strategic Academic Plan that includes a new daily schedule in both the Middle and Upper Division for 2019-2020. The Strategic Academic Plan focuses on five priorities: Student Wellness, Student Engagement, Durable Learning, Community Engagement, and Skills & Knowledge. In addition, Casady’s Strategic Academic Plan includes a pedagogical focus on promoting student engagement and durable learning through learning that is collaborative, interdisciplinary, engaging, authentic, customized/student-driven, and relevant.
