Hello Canes families! My name is Kasi Fisher (pronounced like "Casey"). This will be my fourth year teaching at Cartersville Middle School. I have two children; Olivia who is 10 years old (attends CES 5th grade), and Noah who is 6 years old and is at CPS (Kindergarten). I grew up here in Cartersville, and I love our little hometown. When I am not at school, I enjoy being outdoors, driving with the doors off in my Jeep, riding horses when I get a chance, and I also enjoy exercising and trying to stay healthy. I love spending time with my family and friends as well as my new puppy, Annabelle. I love anything that gets the adrenaline going- Crossfit, sky diving, rock climbing, and the occasional competitive obstacle course races. We currently have a blended household, with 4 kids, and that means a lot of moving parts constantly changing plans and crazy schedules. So I am very understanding and receptive when personal issues and crazy schedules fall over into our professional and school lives. In fact, this centers around my teaching philosophy which is based on the mindset that we are all human, we all deserve grace, especially with new challenges. I understand that above all else, we need kindness, honesty, understanding, and compassion. I hope to help my students grow in their education and reach their goals, but also help them to develop a good character and create an open mindset so they can become the best version of themselves. I hope to make this school year fun, and a memorable one for all my students.
Regarding my education, I graduated from Kennesaw State University with my Bachelor's Degree in Middle Grades Education. I am also currently in my Master's Program with KSU towards an Instrutional Technology Specialist Accreditation. I had a previous career in law enforcement, but during my time in college at KSU, I quickly discovered that my heart was in education.
I believe this is going to be a different, yet great year filled with everyone learning new things, making new friends, and creating new memories. I am very excited for this upcoming school year and I look forward to this new adventure!
