Congrats, Cassie Young, the new SMS GT Teacher

I have been a teacher at Sonora Middle School for 8 years. I love this school, the staff, and the students. I have taught math and science. I have also taught advanced math for 2 years and have started incorporating projects in my classroom and with my team. I am looking forward to working with our gifted and talented students, challenging them to be innovative, creative thinkers and problem solvers as they also challenge me to do the same.

Congratulations, Sarah Rigby, the new SMS Media Specialist

I have taught literacy at Sonora Middle School for 8 years now! Before that, I taught at Sonora Elementary School for 2 years. In my free time, I love spending time with my family, being outdoors as much as possible, going to concerts, reading, & hanging out with my boyfriend & puppy! I love helping students discover their own love of reading & exploring new topics, so I'm very excited to get to continue doing that in this new role as the Library Media Specialist!
