• Welcome to 1st Grade!

    Mrs. Casler - Room 8

     Family Picture

             My name is Mrs. Casler and I am thrilled to begin my second year as part of the Hillside Elementary first grade team. I have a Bachelors in Music from St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Masters in Music Education from the University of Rhode Island, and a Masters of Arts in Teaching from the American College of Education. My experience ranges from a K-6 general music teacher, kindergarten, reading interventionist, and experience in the primary and elementary setting in the Montessori environment. We have been a military family for over 20 years and lived in several cities across the U.S. and internationally. These experiences have broadened and enhanced my view of cultures and approaches to education. My husband and I have five children ages 6, 13, 16, 17, and 19. In my free time I enjoy hiking, camping, sitting around the fire, reading, and making music. I look forward to meeting the students who will be in room 8 and excited to learn, grow, sing, laugh, and enjoy the year together!
