Hello!  My name is CasaDee Reifsteck, and I am so excited to be your teacher this year! I recently graduated from Indiana State University with my bachelors in Elementary Education! I live in Terre Haute with my husband, Blake, and our Golden Retriever, Leo! In my time away from teaching, I like to go on walks with Leo and spend time with family and friends. I am so honored to be able to share this experience with you! Devaney Elementary is a special place to bring new knowledge and memories to the classroom. It will be a great year in Kindergarten!
Some of my favorite things are:
Favorite Color: Pink
Favorite Food: Pizza
Favorite Hobbies: Reading, Music, and Walks with Leo
Favorite Places: Walt Disney World
Favorite Restaurant: Olive Garden
