Casey says, “While teaching in the Global Pathways/American Classroom program at Northeastern University, Casey won the program’s Best Teacher Award twice. She endeavors to create a relaxed class atmosphere but encourages her students to strive for excellence. She believes that students learn best when they have a warm, trusting relationship with their teachers and feel that what they are learning is relevant to their own lives. To this end, she seeks to bring language to life through activities that connect the students to their society, such as writing a letter to the editor of a newspaper or interviewing a leader in their community. She also loves literature and sharing her favorite works with students whenever possible. In her free time, she enjoys creative writing, tennis, and volunteer work. She currently lives in Barcelona.“
