My name is Cassie Tucker, and this is my 8th year at BLMS. I am the STARR program teacher, and I co-teach in 6th-8th grade English. Previously I taught at Patton Jr High on Fort Leavenworth, Christ the King Catholic School, and was a para in the Shawnee Mission and Turner school districts. I received my bachelor’s in Liberal Arts from Park University and my master’s in Special Education from UMKC. I live in KCK with my husband, Jerome, and our dog Smoke. In my free time I enjoy reading, hanging out with friends and family, and watching the Royals, Chiefs, and Kansas State Wildcats.
