Kasi-Ragan Wathley

K3 Lead Teacher

B.A. Secondary Spanish Education with World Language Instructor, Elementary Endorsement, Central Connecticut State University

When asked why she chose to teach at CLA, Mrs. Wathley said, “I believe in Christian education because in the ever-changing world we live in today, it’s important to remember for ourselves, and teach the new generations, who God has called us to be, spread the gospel, and show God’s love through our words and actions.

I have been called to teach at CLA and I am so blessed that the Lord has brought me here. It has been the biggest blessing for my family. Not only do I get to openly speak about Jesus, but I know that my children will be getting a well-rounded, faith based education as well.”

Favorite Scripture: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:2

When asked why she has chosen to work at CLA, Mrs. Kessman said, “I’ve taught at many different schools, none of which were Christian, and I instantly felt a peace at CLA from the staff, children and parents.  I support Christian education, because our children need a strong belief and upbringing in faith to prosper and succeed in God’s will for their lives!
