Victoria Casey

My name is Victoria Casey and I am a Chemistry Teacher /Honors 10th and 12th grade at Deer Lakes High School. I also teach chemical forensics. I have taught at Deer Lakes since 1996.  I am excited about teaching a new course Chemistry Forensic science. Prior to Deer Lakes I worked as a Chemistry teacher at Seton-LaSalle High School.

My personal goal for my classroom is to challenge students to become better problem solvers and instill a sense of curiosity for science. My hope is that students become better consumers, stewards of the environment, and decision makers.
I am a active church member and enjoy camping, fishing, and quad riding with family and friends.
