Hello, Parents! My name is Candice Casaday. I am so excited to be working with your child this year! I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree from Austin Peay State University with a degree in Elementary Education (K-6). I also graduated with a Master's of Art in Education as a Reading Specialist at Austin Peay. I have lived in Clarksville for most of my life, but having a father in the military has allowed me to live in places such as Virginia, Texas, Colorado, and Germany. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my dog, Maggie. I look forward to a fantastic year with you and your child. It is my job to ensure your child reaches their full potential, and has a successful year in fifth grade. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me. Let's have an amazing school year! Go Coyotes!

I graduated with my Master's in Teaching from Austin Peay State University. Also, I have a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology from the University of Maryland. This will be my 6th year teaching 5th Grade at West Creek. When I am not in the classroom with your children, I am spending time with my own. My youngest son turned three this July. I have a son entering first grade, and a daughter going into fourth grade this year. I am so excited to continue my teaching career here at West Creek Elementary. I look forward to meeting your child and working with them during their final year at West Creek Elementary.
