Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Cassandra Stout
Hi everyone! I am starting my 14th year in education. I have taught 3rd and 5th for grade for 12 years and am looking forward to my 2nd year at MPMS. I earned my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from RCCC and my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from UNCC. I am also GLEE certified.
I am a fur mama to a 16 year old Chihuahua named Bailey and a 6 year old Australian Shepherd named Kenzy. We added a new addition to our family in December. She is a Shitzu named Daisy. My nephew turned 1 in July. I can't believe how fast that went by! When at home I love being outdoors, eating sushi and enjoying Diet Mountain Dew. I am looking forward to another year as a Mount Pleasant Tiger!
I have high expectations for my students.1. Be prepared each day - have all your materials...Math notebooks are needed everyday.
2. Homework should be completed each night, it is an extension of the lesson!
3. Follow directions the first time given.4. Classroom transitions should be done quickly and quietly.
HOMEWORK: Students will have homework every night during the week (Monday-Thursday). Grading is based on EFFORT! I JUST WANT TO SEE YOU TRY! Please make sure you are completing your homework, as it is 5 points off the total Homework grade each time you do not complete it. All students start at 100 at the beginning of each quarter and after progress reports.
To Schedule a Conference: If you would like to meet with your student's teachers, you must call Mrs. Taylor in the office at 704-260-6530. Meetings should not be scheduled through emails or written notes to individual teachers.
Getting make up work for students who have been absent: It is always the student'sresponsibility to ask each teacher for his/her make up work upon returning to school. Please don't email the homeroom teacher for make up work, as s/he cannot gather up the work from all the other teachers your child sees in a day. Refer to the student handbook for more details on this topic.
A word about Extra credit: Individual extra credit is NOT offered.
