Ten new teachers will be joining the staff at the Cassville school district for the 2016-2017 school year, two are Cassville graduates. About 30 percent of teachers in the district are what Superintendent Richard Asbill refers to as "home grown," graduating from the district themselves. Asbill said he encourages graduates to stay in Cassville to teach to keep the district community and family-based, and as a means to that end, promotes local teaching programs and initiatives for students to investigate and consider the field of teaching while in school. Pictured from left, front row, are: Marcus Reynolds, Industrial Technology; Sarah Sandoval, second grade; Victoria LeCompte, kindergarten; Nathan Fortner, at-risk, ISS; Micah Boise, assistant vocal teacher; second row: Sara Robertson, k-4 technology; Sheila Littlefield, third grade; Jake Forste, middle school computer science; and Brandon Cobb, high school physical education and health. Not pictured is teacher John Littlefield, who will be teaching middle school and high school agricultural education. LeCompte and Sandoval are Cassville graduates. Julia Kilmeremail@example.com
