I met Mr. Casey in Grade 7 when I moved to Forteau Labrador. He taught me English for 6 years. I never felt like I fit in much, however Mr. Casey always had a smiling face and made school an exciting place to come to each day despite how I felt.
Not only was he an English teacher but he also became my Principal. His most important value was to instill a love of learning, creativity and community in his students. He made everyone who he encountered feel loved, equal and safe. Not only was he an amazing teacher and principal, he’d also take the time to teach extra curricular activities to the high school students. He inspired me daily to learn more, exceed my own goals and be creative in everything I do.
The sincerity of this man is to be noted because he puts 110% into everything he does at school and has great passion to see students succeed. He is funny, smart, respected and an all around great teacher that has impacted me to become the best leader/teacher that I can be. He will always be a role model in my eyes.
