Welcome to Our Class!
Wow! What a year it has been! The students are in full swing and hitting their strides. Our reading, writing and math are taking off. We will continue to improve on our descriptive, expository and creative writing as well as honing our persuasive skills. Our understanding of math concepts and strategies keeps getting stronger. We are excited for the remainder of our year which is packed full of Faith, Character and Service all interwoven throughout our comprehensive curriculum. Our class is a wonderful environment in which students are shown the tools for how to problem solve both individually and collaboratively. I am amazed every day at what these young “saints in the making” can accomplish.
My name is Rich Casey and I have been blessed with the opportunity to teach First Grade at St. Bridget School since 2010. For the past several years I have also been the Athletic Director which has allowed me to experience our wonderful students and families on another level.
I have lived here in Cheshire since 1999 with my lovely wife and two children, both of whom attended St. Bridget School when they were younger. We love this school and parish.
I received my Master’s in Education from Quinnipiac University in 2005 and taught in public school for several years before bringing my children to St. Bridget School. I was overjoyed to then come here with them and be a part of this family.
