Well hello there Cool Spring families! My name is Cassie Durgin and I am beyond excited to begin my fifth year teaching third grade! I am a Loudoun County native! I grew up in Purcellville, Virginia and recently moved to Winchester, VA. I received my teaching degree at Shepherd University in the charming town of Shepherdstown, West Virginia. I love spending time outdoors, crafting, my dog Stella, and my job! In less than a month, my new name will be Mrs. Wilt as I am getting married on September 16th! In my classroom, I strive to create a kind, respectful environment and engage students by connecting standards of learning to everyday life. I also believe collaboration and communication are important tools to success! I look forward to meeting my new students and having another fabulous year in third grade! If you have any questions, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
