Mrs. Casi Thedford

Welcome to room 826!
 
I am the yearbook and newspaper adviser here at East. I also teach the introduction courses: photojournalism and journalism. I've been with Wylie ISD for 18 years, four at Wylie High and the remainder here at East. I am an "Alpha Staff Member," meaning that I have been at this school since the first day it opened. 
 
I also coach the journalism UIL team. (News Writing, Headline Writing, Feature Writing, Editorial Writing, Copy Editing, and Spelling/Vocabulary)
 
I am the sponsor for Quill and Scroll, the International Honorary Society for High School Journalists. This organization is open to any junior or senior journalism student with a B or better average, or in the upper third of their class scholastic standing (or an editor on an East publication staff). 
 
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Communications with a minor in Mass Communications from Texas Tech University. I have teaching certifications in journalism and English Language Arts 8-12.
