About me 

My name is Cassidy Edwards and I will be teaching the Sports Medicine Classes this year at Canyon del Oro High School! I am excited to work with your students and get to know you as well. A little about me:.

I am a mom of a wonderful daughter with a baby boy on the way. Our house is crazy and full. We house two fun loving and wild dogs, a grouchy old cat, and six chickens. Our family enjoys being outdoors and participating in activities such as fishing and hiking. I enjoy being working out and reading as well.

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training. I have been a practicing Athletic Trainer for the past 7 years. I was the Athletic Trainer here at CDO high school for 6 of those 7 years. During that time I have also taught Sports Medicine classes at CDO and in the Amphi District for 5 of those years. I took a few years off to spend more time with my family.

As a practicing medical professional, my goal is to share my passion for sports medicine with your child. I hope to share real life experiences to connect with the learning. Students will have opportunities to practically apply knowledge. I want to prepare each student for a future in medicine. 

 

Defining Moment

When I was little I wanted to be a teacher. As I got older I fell in love with medicine. I was active and played sports and became an Athletic Trainer. Over the years I have enjoyed connecting with students who want to go into medicine. I cannot say there was one moment where I decided I wanted to be a teacher. It was a mix of my passion for medicine and my love for helping others find their passion in medicine. My two dreams as a young person have come together in this class. 

 

Core Educational Belief

My educational belief is that everyone has a passion. If you can relate what you do in the classroom to that passion all learning is possible.
