About Cassandra

Hi! My name is Cassandra. I am a certified special education teacher who loves to see students succeed.
My love for teaching came from volunteering in my youngest son's general education and special education classrooms. I had never thought of becoming a teacher until I found myself volunteering in the classroom tutoring students. On days I was scheduled to work at the school, I remember telling my husband I was going to the school to play for the day. Between my realization for my love of teaching and the encouragement of some awesome teachers at my son’s school, I started my educational journey to become a teacher.

My teaching philosophy is quite simple: all students can learn new skills despite their ability level. We all learn new skills differently; therefore part of teaching is finding new creative ways of teaching the same subject. Part of teaching is to be a team player. So as your son or daughter's tutor I believe in open communication with you. I believe part of educating students is holding them responsible for their actions and expecting students, as well as myself, to do our personal best at all times.
