My name is Cassandra Hepworth. I recently completed my Bachelor of Education degree (Secondary) with a major in English and minor in Social Studies. Throughout my time at the University of Regina, I became invested in anti-oppression. I developed a strong interest in feminism, environmental education, mental health advocacy and anti-racism pedagogy. All of these aspects can be implemented in teaching through community involvement. Students can become passionate, curious and empathetic citizens through interacting, getting to know and participating in the larger community. I strive to create excellent and trusting relationships with my students by working and learning alongside them. A successful classroom, in my eyes, is one that grows together and supports each other. I know that I am a successful teacher when students are asking critical questions and when they view themselves as creators and influencers. I am a reader, a learner, an amateur artist and writer, an outdoors enthusiast, a wannabe wanderer, a daughter, a sister, a cat mom and a dedicated educator.
