Meet the Teacher

  • Hello! Welcome to my classroom website!

    My name is Mrs. Cassidy Rice, and I am super excited to be teaching at West Hopkins this year! I recently graduated from Murray State University; therefore, this will be my first year as a certified classroom teacher. I have a degree in Special Education, as well as, Elementary Education.  I also attended Mid-Continent University for two years on a volleyball scholarship.  I absolutely LOVE teaching, and I can not imagine doing anything else!  Well, enough about my educational background! :)  Let me share a few things about myself on a personal level!  I married my best friend, Garrett Rice, in July of 2015, and we have one fur baby and her name is Jaycee!  I attended West Hopkins from kindergarten all the way up to eighth grade. I graduated eighth grade in 2008.  I played basketball for the Lady Cardinals throughout those three years of middle school.  I then went on to Caldwell County High School, where I also played basketball, volleyball, and softball for four years.  West Hopkins holds a special place in my heart and means a lot to me and my family.  I am so blessed that I have the opportunity to begin my career at such a wonderful and caring school.  My goal this year is to touch the lives of many students and teach them to love learning! I believe that every child is gifted; however, each child unwraps their gifts at different times!  I can not wait to see the day where those gifts begin to get unwrapped!  Again, I am so excited to be at West Hopkins, and I can not wait to meet all of my sweet students!  Please feel free to contact me about your child's education!  We must create a partnership to ensure that your child receives the BEST education possible!
