The Last Word—Cassie Cunningham

Cassie Cunningham
Teacher, Longleaf Elementary School

What is your chief characteristic?
I’m extremely organized. Even my spontaneous moments are very well planned.

What do you appreciate most about your friends?
They all have such different personalities. I never get the same type of advice from any of them, and spending time with them is always something new. It makes my life that much more interesting.

Who is your favorite fiction character?
Holly Golightly from Truman Capote’s novel “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” She’s a completely unique individual. Very adventurous but at the same time she’s a little off her rocker.

Who is your favorite non-fiction character?
The actress Lauren Bacall. She has always been a person who spoke her mind. She’s a strong female figure on and off the screen.

What is the best thing you have ever won?
My fiancé. He’s the greatest reward I’ve ever worked toward.

What did your mother always tell you?
To see and do everything I can. She’s always encouraged me to travel as much as possible while I still can.

What is the worst idea you’ve ever had?
I decided to dye my hair dark brown last year. I quickly learned that blondes really do have more fun.

What is your favorite food?
Native Café’s Crab Cake Benedict

Which talent would you most like to have?
It would be nice to be a better dancer. Choreography and myself do not get along well.

What movie do you love to watch repeatedly?
“Wedding Crashers.”

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I slipped on the Pensacola Boardwalk one New Year’s Eve. I’m pretty sure it hurt my pride and my bottom equally.

What TV show is your guilty pleasure?
“Doctor Who”

What is the last book you read?
“Water for Elephants.” It’s a beautiful book.

What is your theme song?
Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” with a little of Bellamy Brothers’ “Redneck Girl.”
