Casey says: “I am a high school English teacher in Boston Public Schools who grew up by the ocean in Gloucester, MA. I received my B.A. from Hampshire College (Amherst, MA) with a concentration in youth development and literature. Upon my graduation, I moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and taught as an elementary school teacher for two years. I was able to combine my interest in teaching with my love for agriculture, running and updating a large school garden during that time. In 2014, I moved back to the Boston area to pursue a Masters of Arts in Teaching at Simmons College and became a secondary school English teacher with full certifications. Since then, I have enjoyed teaching primarily 12th grade students using a variety of literary texts and critical theory. I live in Medford and enjoy running, baking, and reading poetry.”
