English Language Arts to the 7th Grade Teacher
Cassie Greaney is an English Language Arts to the 7th grade teacher at Utah Connections Academy. She shares her story below:
“I wanted to teach online because I see this as such an important option for some learners. It provided me the availability to work from home and continue to develop relationships with fantastic students.
I live with my husband Marc, my two teen daughters Padmae and Angelina (Genie), and lots of dogs, two cats, and a guinea pig in the mountains of Arizona.

Some fun facts about me are that I play the tenor saxophone, I used to live and work in Hollywood, CA, doing stage management for theatre and film, and I absolutely abhor celery--like...my family isn't allowed to eat it in front of me or even have it in the house!
I grew up in Peoria, IL, and am a die-hard Cubs and Bears fan! I used to do barrel racing in the rodeo when I was a teenager. I live every day with a condition called cerebral palsy, and am also a cancer survivor! I love dogs more than just about almost anything!”"
