    Meet Mrs. Risorto & Mrs. Cassidy

    Mrs. Risorto: Hi there and welcome to Fifth Grade!  This is my sixth year teaching in Berkeley Heights... My second year at Hughes!  You might have heard of me a few years back when I taught fifth grade at Hughes.  I got married in June so I am no longer Miss Bamundo!  My family and I watch a lot of Disney movies and love playing with our puppy, Jordy.  She was named after an old Green Bay Packers player... We are big sports fans!  I am also a Yankee fan.  Some of my favorite things to do are go to the beach, listen to country music, and travel around the world!  My favorite books to read are any of the Harry Potter books.  My favorite subject in school is Math.  I can't wait to spend our year together!

    Mrs. Cassidy: Hi fifth graders! I am so excited to be joining the Hughes School team and that I get to be your teacher this year! It is my first year teaching at Hughes. I taught at Woodruff Elementary School for 11 years and last year I taught at Mountain Park. One of my favorite things to do is spend time with my family. I have two energetic sons, Colton and Ryan. We love to kayak and paddleboard on our lake, ride bikes, and watch movies. I also enjoy gardening, working out, and reading. My favorite subject in school was Math but I love to teach Writing. I also love doing Science experiments! I'm looking forward to having a fantastic year!
