Hello and welcome to ASR2! My name is Angel Ceasar and I am originally from Iowa, but have lived in Minneapolis for four years. I graduated from Iowa State University (Go Cyclones!) in 2009 with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology, as well as in Kinesiology & Health. I have somewhat of a unique path to education and spent five years in South Korea teaching English as a foreign language. During this time, I realized my passion for education and decided to pursue this as a career. I completed my Masters in Education with a licensure in Academic Behavioral Strategist at Augsburg University in May of 2020. Besides collecting degrees, I enjoy bike riding, cooking, attending film festivals, and traveling.
This is my third year working at Spero Academy and my second year as a Special Education teacher. I am committed to providing students with the opportunity to develop their social-emotional, academic, and functional life skills, while also taking into account their own individual needs and learning speed. In ASR2, we will continue to build our literacy and math skills with an emphasis on the student's individual academic needs. All ASR2 students will work closely with their peers in Grade Level 2 and PLS2 to support inclusion for all students.
I'm looking forward to working with your student and can't wait to start a new year of learning!
See you in 2nd grade,
- Ms. Angel
