Cassondra McCarthy is an English/Language Arts teacher-turned-Library Associate who seeks to match education professionals and parents with the resources they need to ensure every student has a successful present and future. After spending several years working in Connecticut school districts, Cassondra understands the struggle educators face to match the needs of the student with the right solution. She firmly believes that, given the right tools and inspiration, every child can achieve the excellence that will allow them to reach for their dreams.
This is why she is dedicated to designing the SERC Library to be a welcoming, inclusive space for all with a collection of highly developed resources to support teachers and parents as they advocate for the young people in their lives. The SERC Library is committed to being at the forefront of innovation in education so that we can achieve the goal of providing an equitable education for all. If we can unite to ensure that every student has access to the resources they need to succeed, we can be assured that the future of our communities and the world will be a bright one.
With this in mind, Cassondra encourages anyone with questions or suggestions to reach out to the SERC Library staff so that we can help you meet the needs of your child, classroom, school, company, or district.
Cassondra has a Bachelor’s degree in Education and English (015) and is working on completing a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science at Rutgers University.
