About Mrs. Cassie Arriaga...
Team/Department: 5th Grade
My name is Cassie Arriaga and I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Riggs Elementary. I have been teaching over the last 25+ years and have 13 years experience in the classroom. I have been blessed with 3 sons (aged 19, 21, and 23) and a sweet husband of 24 years!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with my BA in Elementary Education from Ottawa University many moons ago!
My Educational Philosophy
Fifth grade is an exciting time as children are on a journey filled with new adventures and skills. This is a year of rigorous learning, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills are accelerated. You will be amazed at just how much your child will grow this year. I am thrilled to be a part of this exceptional time in these children's lives. Our weeks will be filled with many new experiences and opportunities for learning and exploration. I am eager to build meaningful relationships with my new 5th graders during the many busy weeks to come! I am looking forward to a very productive and wonderful year ahead.
