Elementary School Lead / Second Grade Teacher

I chose a career in education because growing up I had a multitude of teachers that impacted and influenced my life. They helped me make the decision that led me to teaching. I want to be that teacher that changes a student’s life, and has that same kind of influence and impact on them that educators had on me. After observing many teachers and their tactics when it came to teaching over the years, I would always say in my head “I like that method, but I can improve it.” I have been here for almost 14 years seeing all the in’s & out, and the revolving door of staff that have come through our building. But those who stuck it out have truly created a CATA family and I can say we are a family. I admire, respect, value and appreciate the CATA family for being a place where one can grow and truly find their niche. We are a family and we ride for each other, and that is what I love, and that is why I am still here. When it comes to my legacy I believe CATA students’ lives will be better with me in it, due to the fact that they know my methods come from a place of love and structure. Students crave love and structure, I give my students both of these and I do my best to make the educational experience fun, and something they can walk away saying years later, “Mr. Mason taught me that.”
