My name is Joann Cassano and I will be your English teacher for the 2014-2015 school year.
A little information about myself: I grew up in Virginia and attended Virginia Tech. I earned a B.S. in Psychology, a B.A. in English, and an M.A.Ed in Secondary English Education. After graduation I moved to Jacksonville, NC, for 2 years. While there, I taught 9th grade English at a local high school and Freshmen English Composition at the local community college. In January 2011 I moved here to Colorado Springs. After moving here in January, I worked at Wasson High School as an English and math interventionist for the remainder of the 2010-2011 school year. In August 2011 I joined the Kadet Family.
Being a Kadet has been a magnificent experience. So far the students, parents, and staff have been wonderful to work with, and I look forward to every new school year.
Other than being a teacher, I have thoroughly enjoyed being involved in other school activities such as attending sporting events, directing Montage, choreographing musicals, leading LINK Crew, and sponsoring clubs: Ping Pong club (every Friday during Academy in Upper D) and IJM.
If you are interested in either of the clubs, please let me know!
LET'S GO HOKIES!
