About Me


*Please note that with the Current COVID-19 Crisis I am working in a remote location and am available best through e-mail Monday-Friday during regular school hours. College reps and college resources such as financial aid, advisors, and housing staff are available too. I can help, you get connected. There are also virtual tours and career assessments we can do that are listed on this webpage as well as a ton of scholarship resources.


I have missed my students and look forward to hearing from you. CHS loves you and we are here for you, and we will get through this time. Go Wildcats!           Ms. Cassie Talbott, ctalbott@nsd131.org
