Marty Cassity, a 6th grade teacher at Helen Lehman Elementary, is one of only a few teachers in Sonoma County selected to be recognized as an outstanding elementary teacher in a Sonoma County Office of Education bus campaign.
Helen Lehman Principal Alisa Haley says that Mr. Cassity begins the morning checking in with every student, and he connects with each child, getting to know them and their families. He stays on top of technology, using Google classroom and regularly adding items thanks to Donors Choose efforts. Mr. Cassity re-organizes his classroom regularly, to meet student needs. He has a computer area and even an exercise area (mini-gym). Discipline is not an issue in his classroom. Every day is a brand new day. Students know that he knows them and cares about them.
The other teacher featured on the ad (above) is an Elsie Allen High School graduate! Congratulations Katrina Kutz and all of the other teachers recognized in the campaign.
The ads will run on Sonoma County Transit buses through May 31st.
