Personal Biography
I am Dr. Corinne Cascadden, a Berlin native and raised in a bilingual French/English household. I attended both private and public schools. I am currently a retired School Superintendent having served SAU#3 Berlin for 41 years and served as an Interim Superintendent in SAU# 84 Littleton and SAU#76 Lyme. In 2020, I was appointed to the NH School Funding Commission and have a passion to resolve the issues with public school funding. Some of my most notable achievements include earning a Doctorate in Education Leadership, receiving a community award from Coos County Family Health Services for assisting in the implementation of a school oral health program, and being presented with the Granite United Way Community Support award. As a school administrator, I have served on various community committees and boards to support local activities and initiatives. I have also served on regional and state boards such as North Country Charter Academy, NH Pre-engineering Technology Advisory Council, NH Dept. of Education State Consortium for Educator Effectiveness.
Local Government Involvement
The school system is a department of the city of Berlin. As the School Superintendent, I had a key role in city government by developing budgets and participating in city emergency planning and management. As a school principal, I led the construction of a new playground and participated in local community events. I served on White Mt. Community College Advisory Board and on the Federal Corrections Community Relations Board. I had the experience of supporting staff, students, and families during the 2007-08 demise of the city’s paper mill industry. The city has since worked rigorously at reinventing itself and growing the economic base towards a thriving community.
Miscellaneous Information:
I am a NH certified School Superintendent, School Principal, K-8 Teacher, and English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). I serve school districts as an independent Consultant, mostly administering the federally required ESOL assessments and mentoring teachers who are in process of ESOL certification. My husband and I have raised 2 sons, a Physician Assistant, the other is in Food Service Administration for Federal Corrections. I am most proud of my 5 grandchildren, Cooper, Noella, Everly, Aubrey, and Brooks. Hockey plays a big role in our family, and we are all downhill skiers. We spend leisure time at our lake house in Errol, NH.
