Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
Hello, my name is Carey Chasteen and I will be your child's 6th grade science teacher this year. Let me begin by saying that I am looking forward to getting to know your child and sharing with them my knowledge and love of science.
I received my teaching certificate and Master's Degree through The College of St. Scholastica-St. Paul. I'm licensed in Life Science grades 9-12 and General Science grades 5-8. I'm excited to be back at Coon Rapids Middle School for my tenth year of teaching; I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year.
I have three children ages 24, 22, and 19. My oldest is living in Chicago and working in a lab. My second child is graduating from college in December and will be working at an accounting firm in January and my youngest will is a sophomore in college. It's amazing how quickly they grow up. In my leisure time I enjoy reading, bike riding, walking my dog, and spending time with my family. When I get the opportunity I also enjoy volunteering in the community.
I believe that communication between school and home is important. Therefore, if you have any questions or concerns please email or call me. If you would like to receive periodic emails throughout the year regarding upcoming quizzes/tests and projects, please make sure you are signed up for A-H Connect and that the school district has a valid email address for you. If you need assistance or have questions regarding A-H Connect, please call 763-506-HELP.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
