Cassie Salas - ESL Teacher

Howdy! I'm Ms. Cassie and this is my fourth year teaching at Buffalo Creek Elementary and my ninth year in early childhood. I taught Pre-K for five years while at Texas A&M University, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. WHOOP!

I am from Fort Worth, Texas. I am the first in my family to graduate from university. I love to organize and I enjoy reading children's books. 

At the start of this school year, I will officially be a breast cancer survivor!

I discovered my passion for learning from my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Hauk. Mrs. Hauk made learning fun and meaningful. She introduced new concepts with such enthusiasm that you couldn't help but be excited. She created an environment where we explored new ideas, were encouraged to ask questions, and were motivated to express ourselves without feeling apprehensive. We were more than a class; we were a family. The experiences in that classroom were my inspiration for becoming a teacher. 

My goal is to create that same environment and to instill, in all of my students, that same love for learning.

"If a child has not learned,

we must assume
that we have not yet
found the right way
to teach him."
