Toddler Teacher at First Steps Learning Academy
My name is Kasandra but everyone calls me Kassi. I'm the middle of seven siblings. My Siblings mean the world to me and during my free time, I love spending time with them. Although we do not always have super exciting things to do, our favorite past-time is just hanging out to talk! I love reading, watching movies, and adventures. I love sunflowers and I am also interested in pursuing a career as a nurse. I like everythung BUT the COLD! I love making people laugh and smile.
I'm the middle child of 7 children and the oldest girl. I have 3 older brothers and I'm really close with the oldest. I am also very close with my second oldest brother, who is serving in the navy. I have lived in this area my whole life, and grew up in Freeport and Defuniak Springs!
I have worked around children all my life, as a sitter and nurse school teacher. I love working at FSLA because it has offered me the opportunity to work with children of all ages and I have learned so much! I am certified in CPR & First Aid, as I have attended nursing school for several years. My time in nursing school has also prepared me to react very quickly in emergency situations. I love teaching children in the classroom and I love contributing to their knowledge of reading and writng each day!
Working With Children
Life's Awesome Moments
I love working with children because in reality I'm a "big child too" and I love to play and help people learn new things. What drives my passion is seeing the excitement that the kids have on there faces when they learn something and are excited to show their parents. While working with children, I've learned that each child is different and respond's things differently. i feel like i can help them learn new and better things each day.
Working with FSLA
What I love about this school is that it's hands on and they prepare you to be successful in the classroom. I don't go to work wondering
what I have to do to help the children in my class, FSLA has everything detailed from planned daily scheduled to the accredited curriculum. I also love how welcoming all of the staff member are and how the make you feel, like your already part of the team! I also love how the school allows you to grow and gives you opportunities to learn more about perfecting your skills as an educator!
