Welcome To MR. CASIMIRO'S Home Page

I want to welcome you to John A. Walsh Math and Science Academy.

In July 1994, the Board of Education decided to demolish the structure built in 1886 and replace it with a new addition. A new building was constructed at 2031 South Peoria Street during 1992-1994. On January 1996, the Board of Trustees approved the funds for the construction of an addition to be built on the site of the recently demolished 1886 building.



I have chosen to be a middle level educator, for I recognize that the years of early adolescence are pivotal and about with individual potential and opportunity.  Therefore, I will care for these students personally, listen to their voices, respect their concerns, and engage them in meaningful educational experiences that will prepare them for a promising future.

I believe that every young adolescent...

* has the capacity to learn, grow, and develop into a knowledgeable, reflective, caring, ethical, and contributing citizen.

* must have access to the very best programs and practices a school can offer.

* must be engaged in learning that is relevant, challenging, integrative, and exploratory.

* thrives academically, socially, and emotionally in a democratic learning environment where trust and respect are paramount and where family and community are actively involved.

* faces significant life choices and needs support in making wise and healthy decisions.

*deserves educators who are prepared to work with this age group, who are themselves lifelong learners and committed to their own ongoing professional development and growth.

Therefore, I proudly dedicate myself to becoming the best middle level educator I can be and an active advocate for all young adolescents.
