Inspired by a great middle school math teacher, Cassie Nolfi knew she wanted to be a teacher since she was young. She attended Saint Vincent College and graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics and Secondary Education Certification. Cassie joined Valley School in 2014 and she went back to Saint Vincent for her M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction in 2018. In her 9th year at Valley School, Cassie continues to find fulfillment in developing students’ problem-solving skills and helping them to make meaning of math.
Along with teaching math, Cassie serves as the Math Department Chair, 8th-grade Advisor, and a 7th- and 8th-grade soccer Coach. Outside of school, she enjoys spending time with her family and watching sports—especially the Pittsburgh Penguins.
