About Mr. Cayer

Hi!  My name is James Cayer!

I am so excited to be returning to Somerset Academy for the 2017-2018 school year!  I am even more excited to have your child in my classroom!  I absolutely LOVE teaching and believe that all students should be given the opportunities to succeed, both academically and socially.  In my classroom you will find a fun and stimulating environment that promotes learning, respect, and responsibility.

I have been a P.E. teacher and taught computers. Before coming to Somerset, I taught 4th grade for 9 years. My first two years at Somerset were upstairs teaching 3rd grade.  This is my second year in 2nd grade and I am loving it! My hobbies include playing basketball, tennis, flag football, jogging, swimming, golf, working out, and spending time with family and friends.  During the fall and winter months, you will find me in Glendale, Arizona, watching my beloved Arizona Cardinals!

My wife of 26 years, Kayla, is also at Somerset Academy as a third grade teacher.  We moved to Las Vegas 17 years ago from Clovis, New Mexico.  I grew up in Douglas, Wyoming, a small, quiet town.  I have lived in many states since leaving high school including Nebraska, Colorado, California, and New Mexico.

In addition to my teaching duties, I have also served in these capacities:

  • Grade Level Chair-- 4th Grade (8 years at Kitty Ward Elementary)
  • Grade Level Chair-- 3rd Grade 
  • Grade Level Chair -- 2nd Grade (Current)
  • President of Kitty Ward Empowerment Team
  • Kitty Ward Foundations Team Chair 
  • Social Committee Co-Chair
  • Student Improvement Team Chair (SIT)
  • Student Council at Sky Pointe
  • Behavior Improvement Committee at Sky Pointe
  • Chess Club at Sky Pointe
  • Divide and Conquer Club at Sky Pointe
  • Rockin Reporters Club at Sky Pointe

As you can see, I like to keep myself busy at our wonderful school!
