I am a highly qualified elementary school teacher.  I graduated from UNCW, where I earned my bachelor degree in Elementary Education. Currently, I am pursuing a masters in school administration through ECU.


I have been a teacher for 7 year.  I have worked as a 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classroom teacher in the Onslow County School district.  This year I have been giving the opportunity to teach the math lab during our WAVE rotations.  In this position, I will have the privilege to work with all elementary grades.  


Hello and welcome to my page!

My name is Gary Cassidy.  I am very excited to start my third year here at Dixon Elementary School!  This year I will be taking on a new position.  I have been given the opportunity to work as the math lab teacher for all grade levels during their WAVE day specials rotations.  I have been a teacher in the Onslow County School system for the past 7 years.  I'm a passionate math teacher and was named Math Teacher of the Year for Onslow County during the 2013/14 school year.  It is my goal to provide all students with the absolute best math enrichment I possibly can.  To do this, I will work closely with classroom teachers and develop meaningful enrichment math activities to explore the concepts they are learning in their math classes.  I am looking forward to working with all grade levels this year during WAVE days.

My background...

After working in the banking field for several years, I decided to follow my passion to become a teacher.  I believe every student can learn and I always look for innovative ways to challenge and enrich students to achieve their goals.  I have very high expectations of all of my students; this has largely contributed to the success of my students over the years.  I look forward to having another wonderful experience during the 20016/17 school year!


Thank you,

Gary Cassidy
