Welcome to Kindergarten at Cain Elementary!
 
My name is Terri Cassels and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year!  This is my 8th year to teach.  I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, but my heart is definitely in Kindergarten!
 
My husband and I have been married for 21 years and we have 4 children that all attend Whitehouse schools.  We also have 3 dogs, a hamster, a fish, and a squirrel!  We stay VERY busy, but we love our crazy life!
 
Please know that I will do my very best to make this school year a fun time for your child, but also a time filled with learning.  The skills we practice in Kindergarten are the building blocks for your child's future success in school and in life!
 
 
As part of our No Excuses University, our class has adopted East Texas Baptist University in Marshall, Texas.  I graduated from there (a long time ago!) and had a wonderful experience learning how to become a teacher.  On Mondays, we wear our ETBU colors (blue and gold) and we cheer for the Tigers!
 
Please let me know if you have any questions about our class!

*Note that Kindergarten does not have traditional "grades", but we check for mastery on the skills we teach.
