Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year and 5th/6th Grade Math in Room A217, Smith College! I am the 5th and 6th Grade Math Teacher, Mr. Casselberry, and I am very excited for a new school year with our middle school students! This is my 7th year teaching at WGLA and 28th overall. I have worked with most of these girls and I am confident we are going to accomplish and grow a great deal throughout this school year, both academically and personally. Class Dojo Messenger is the best way to contact all 5th/6th-grade teachers. Class Dojo Story is the best way to keep up with Middle School updates, important dates, activities we are doing in class, and school-wide events. I look forward to connecting with everyone on Class Dojo!
