Dr. Cassandra S. Bosier has utilized her uncompromised drive to learn new things, pose reflective questions, and empower others as momentum in setting the stage for her continuous steadfastness in the educational field. It is a field that she continues to find incredibly rewarding even after nearly two decades. Dr. Bosier states that she "looks forward to coming to work each day with an expectation of exploring all options, navigating through challenges, and discovering new pathways."
Dr. Bosier began her career in 1998 in Clarendon School District One where she taught 3rd grade for one year prior to relocating to Columbia, SC in 1999. Upon relocating, she was hired in Richland District Two and taught grades 3, 4, and 5 at Joesph Keels Elementary. All of her students fully understood and accepted the set of high expectations that were placed before them each day. Often times, you could pass by her classroom throughout the day and hear students reciting the chant: "Good, better, best. I will never let it rest until my Good is my Better and my Better is my BEST!"
After serving as a classroom teacher for seven years, Dr. Bosier was selected to fulfill the role of a mathematics instructional coach within the district for three years. She spent this time training/coaching K-5 teachers within her school and across the district on the best teaching practices in the area of mathematics. At the end of the contractual agreement in 2008, she returned to the classroom as a 3rd grade teacher at Bookman Road Elementary School. After only one year of teaching there, she was named the school's Teacher of the Year.
In 2012, Dr. Bosier was promoted to serve as an assistant principal at Forest Lake Elementary School. She fulfilled this role until assuming the role of principal of Polo Road Elementary School in January 2017.
Dr. Bosier loves spending time with family, cooking, traveling and watching Family Feud! She is a dutiful wife to her wonderful husband and a loving mother of three children; two of whom are Richland Two students and her eldest is now a Richland Two graduate and student in College. Dr. Bosier is an active founding member of Perfecting Faith Church where she serves as an Evangelist, Sunday School Teacher, Assistant Dean of the Bible Enrichment Institute, and a member of the administrative staff.
