Our Teachers

Cassidy Rash

I am the owner of Carus Preschool, early childhood education is my passion and I absolutely love what I do! My favorite thing about teaching is watching my students spark joy and get excited about learning. My husband Kevin and I have two boys, Karson, and Jameson. The four of us love to play card games, go on adventures together, have silly dance parties and hang out at home with our animals. We have a dog Luna and two cats, Loki and Pawsman. I enjoy seeing live music, going on hikes with my dog and spending time with my friends and family. I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces this year and getting to know the new ones.
