My name is Casandra George, and this will be my ninth year of teaching at W.J. Gurganus. I previously taught fourth grade, and I have now made my way to Kindergarten. I graduated from UNC Pembroke with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education with a Concentration and Minor in Mathematics. I was also a part of the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Program while at UNC Pembroke.
Before UNC Pembroke, I spent my life in Havelock. I was born and raised in this sweet, small town. After graduation, I returned to Havelock to begin my career as a teacher and be with my loving husband, Ryan. Not only was I beginning my career as a teacher when I returned from college, but I was also beginning my lifelong career of being a mother. In January 2013, my husband and I brought home a healthy baby boy, Kyedan. He is now a spirited and athletic seven year old who loves space, building with Legos, and sports. Almost four years ago, we welcomed another baby boy, Cayson. He is such a happy boy who loves to eat! Just this year, we welcomed our newest addition, our daughter Azylise. Our family is not complete though without our family dog, Rusty. He is an energetic, attention-seeking black lab mix.
When I am not giving my attention to my kids, I love to find recipes to cook, spend time with my family members, and look at new, creative ways to incorporate in my classroom. You will also find me either on the soccer field, baseball field, or near a wrestling mat as my family is highly involved in sports throughout the year.
