My name is Cassandra Nixon. I feel extremely blessed to be a part of the St. Cyprian faculty and family community. I am the 6th grade Homeroom Teacher and the 6th, 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts and Literature Teacher. I began my teaching career in 2004. I first taught in Long Beach Unified School District for ten years before turning towards my faith and back to my roots as part of the Catholic School Community. Being able to combine my passion for teaching with my passion for my faith has been a dream come true.
I am a local girl who grew up right here in Long Beach. I attended St. Cornelius Catholic School from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. From there, I moved on to St. Anthony High School. Go Saints!! I attended California State University, Long Beach where I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Human Development as well as my Teaching Credential. I currently live in Redondo Beach with my husband, Doug, and our adorable dog Louise.
