Hello! My name is Casey Marusin. This is my fourth year at Tozer Primary School and my seventh year teaching in the Windsor School District. I have a bachelor's degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Early Childhood Education from Colorado State University. I also have my masters degree in Early Childhood Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado.
Teaching is new and interesting every day and I enjoy building relationships with my students and their families. I strive to ensure that your child feels safe, nurtured, and confident so he/she may learn and grow to his/her full potential. My teaching is hands-on and interactive. Most importantly, I want your child to enjoy coming to school!
Our Literacy support is through the American Reading Company. Students will focus on letter identification, sight words/power words, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency and writing skills. These skills are taught through whole group, small group, and independent learning. We will read everyday!
Our Math program is Bridges and does a great job with exploration and hands on learning. Students learn through direct instruction as well as through math games that are engaging and fun!
Our Writing time utilizes Step Up to Writing tools and helps students learn effective multi-sensory writing strategies.
Science and Social Studies are supported through Scholastic News and Science Spin and units of study include but are not limited to Five Senses, Harvest, Needs vs. Wants, Holidays, Animals, the sun, the scientific method and much more!
Our programs are rigorous while also being developmentally engaging and appropriate. We hold the bar high for learners while also providing modifications as needed. All lessons are driven by our Common Core and State standards and we incorporate Learning Targets to help students reflect on their own learning.
Kindergarten is also a time to evolve socially and we feel the social component of kindergarten is as important as the academic. Our Tozer motto is to respect self, others and learning. Students learn how to respect each other by listening when others are talking, helping peers, sharing, and overall treating others as we would like to be treated.
We welcome you and are excited to partner with you in your child's education!
