Hi everyone – My name is Anastasia. I have two children, ages 15 and 11. Prior to having children, I was a high school science teacher. While the kids were small, I volunteered at their schools a lot but I most enjoyed the opportunity to help struggling readers. I think every child has great potential and hope in my role as a CASA, I can provide some stability and clear out some of the obstacles that might hamper their ability to focus on developing that potential.
