About the Teachers

Mrs. Tracey Butler is a veteran sixth grade language arts teacher at 
Arlington Middle School. She loves being a part of the educational process.  
As a child she dreamed of being a teacher and to support that dream, her 
parents built and furnished a schoolroom for her in the garage.  Although her 
students are no longer dolls and teddy bears, she still arrives to the 
classroom with the same enthusiasm and passion.  She has dedicated her life 
to helping students realize their dreams. Her commitment is evident in the 
after school programs she has developed and the extracurricular activities 
she has designed.  Recently she overheard a student saying he wished a 
character he was reading about was a real person, and her peals of joy could 
be heard in the hallway.
Ms. Claire Casaccio is a pre-service teacher from Marist College in 
Poughkeepsie, NY.  She was inspired to become an educator by the many 
wonderful and influential teachers she has had throughout her years of 
schooling.  Ms. Casaccio hopes to instill a love of reading within her 
students by showing them how literature applies to their own lives.  She 
has presented her scholarly research at Marist College's Women and Society 
Conference, the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference in St. Louis, 
Missouri, and the Sigma Tau Delta International Conference in Portland, 
Oregon.  Ms. Casaccio loves to play basketball and hopes to coach a team of 
her own in the future.  She would like to thank Mrs. Butler for her guidance, 
support, and encouragement throughout this learning process and feels very 
fortunate to have had the opportunity to work beside such a wonderful teacher 
and person.           
     Their collaboration this year has not only been a lot of fun but also a 
learning experience for both of them.
