Edison-Fareira High School

Web Page of Mr. Cassorla, Edison Volunteer Teacher

and retired English and Theater Teacher

This web page was last updated on June 16, 2016

Purposes: The purposes of this web page are to highlight the talents of my students, and ultimately, to provide learning resources as well.  This is not an official web page of the school. For official information on this school and others, please visit www.philasd.org

I enjoyed teaching at Edison-Fareira H.S. for seven years as of this writing, or since September 2008. I retired in June, 2015 and have continued to be active as a volunteer. Many teachers have said that they learn from their students, and I am no exception.  At "Edison," I have been witness to great skills, artistic passions and creative excellence.  Some of my students' work is reflected in the Literary Journals shown here, which I have been privileged to compile and edit along with other teachers and our students.  Other video work is on www.youtube.com  Search there for "Fried-Cassorla" to find relevant videos. Also, you may write to me regarding any student work at albert@fried-cas.com  I have not posted all of the previously published such journals. A total of seven were produced, and I may get around to uploading some of the older ones now that I am retired and "infinite" time. :).

Just see our latest and older Journals, just click on the images or HERE! hyperlinks below, and the booklet should open up as a pdf file.  I hope you enjoy our students' creativity!
