Miss Tina Casa

Hello! My name is Tina Casa. I am a first grade teacher at Dixon Road Elementary and proud to be a new addition to the dragonfly family. This is my first year teaching and I am so excited. I began my education with Southern Connecticut State Univeristy and finished my degree through Grand Canyon University. I am from Connecticut and have been in North Carolina in Johnston County for 9 years. I have two boys. Brayden is 12 years old and in 7th grade and Holden is 9 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.
