Miss Tina Casa

Hello! My name is Tina Casa. I am a First Grade teacher at Dixon Road Elementary and proud to be a newer addition to the dragonfly family. This is my second year teaching and I am loving every minute of it. Last year I received a Beginning Teacher of the Year Nomination and could not have been more thrilled for the recognition and confidence in me. I began my education at Southern Connecticut State University and finished my degree at Grand Canyon University. I am from Connecticut and have been in North Carolina in Johnston County for 10 years. I have two boys; Brayden is 13 years old and in 8th grade and Holden is 18 months old. I love spending time with my family, going out to dinner and shopping! I also enjoy time at the beach in the sun and the mountain air. I look forward to working alongside all of my first grade Kiddos! I cannot wait for a wonderful and exciting year.
