My name is Christy Wilson, and I'm excited to be working here at Cassell Elementary. This is my 24th year of teaching, and my 16th in Augusta County. I moved up to Virginia in July 2005, but I am a native of south Florida. I was born and raised in Palm Beach County where the temperature rarely drops below 60, so I don't know if I'll ever get used to winter! I attended Palm Beach Atlantic College, (now University), where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I taught in Palm Beach County schools for 8 years.
While teaching is one of my favorite things to do, I also have other areas of interest. I'm a huge sports fan, with football being my favorite sport of all. I'm sticking to my roots with the teams I cheer for! The Miami Dolphins are my team!! I miss not seeing them play every Sunday, in person. I also pull for the Miami Heat, Miami Marlins, Florida Panthers, and Florida Gators. Along with sports watching, I enjoy spending time outdoors. Since we live in a beautiful area, I like to take advantage of the mountains and go hiking as much as I can. I also enjoy reading, exercising, and photography. When I get the chance, I love to travel. If all that's not enough to keep me busy, I also volunteer at my church with the youth department.
I'm looking forward to a terrific year with your children! Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns that you may have.
