Cassie Carr - Geometry Teacher Shapes Young Lives
Cassie Carr is passionate about investing in students’ lives. While math is her area of expertise, she considers pointing young people to Christ the most rewarding part of her job. Ms. Carr teaches geometry in the North Cobb Christian School Upper School and imparts valuable critical thinking skills that will benefit students for a lifetime.
After completing her education degree, Ms. Carr began searching for a school that would allow her to use her knowledge and skills for God’s glory. She started substituting at North Cobb Christian School in the spring of 1992 and officially joined the staff in a full-time capacity in the fall of 1992.
Each morning she is reminded of why she chose this career.
“My favorite part of the day is the beginning of every class when students walk in,” Ms. Carr said. “I am so glad to see each one of them and love that we get to pray together before we begin the lesson.”
Prayer is an important part of the NCCS academic program. Teachers serve as mentors to students, getting to know what is on their hearts and praying for them on a daily basis. Likewise, students are encouraged to lift up their peers in prayer. Starting class this way is a reminder of our school’s purpose: developing students to impact the world for Christ.
Ms. Carr is deeply invested in preparing her students for the future. She explains, “The academic program at NCCS provides so many opportunities to enrich the interests of students and to prepare them for the next step. It is a college-prep program and students have the opportunity to choose a rigorous path with many offerings in honors, AP, and college dual-enrollment courses.”
As the geometry teacher, she sees firsthand how students benefit from developing strong reasoning and critical thinking skills.
“Math teaches students to determine what information is important and how to relate that information,” Ms. Carr said. “It is so very rewarding to see how students grow in their ability to think through situations in class and outside of class.”
But it’s not math, science, writing, or history that makes NCCS different — it’s the mission. According to Ms. Carr, the NCCS Upper School’s academics, athletics, and arts programs stand out, but not as much as the teachers’ dedication to their students.
“We are dedicated to working together to cultivate hearts to care and encourage, challenging minds to think deeply, and to impact culture for Christ and His Kingdom,” she said. “I love getting to work alongside the best group of teachers who are like-minded in pointing students to Christ.”
