Who I Am
EDUCATE WITH HEART.
My name is Cassandra, but team members call me Cassey and students like to call me Ms. Boland or Ms. B! It's lovely to e-meet you.
My teaching philosophy from day one has incorporated Alberta Teaching Quality Standards, individualized Programs of Study curriculum in tandem with building genuine relationships with students and other members of the learning community.
With unique experiences studying abroad at Ryerson University in Toronto and Edinburgh Napier University, interning in New York City at the United Nations and working in the creative communications industry in combination with volunteering with the CBE, I offer school communities a wide array of experiences that transfer to authentic, real-world education.
Over the past few years I have found that my passion for learning, communication, creativity and caring for others best aligns with the wonderful world of education. It was with this realization that I pursued my second degree with the Werklund School of Education, specializing in Elementary English education. Throughout these experiences, which I am incredibly thankful for, I have developed a pedagogy which incorporates a creative edge, engaging and fun education, and a joy for lifelong learning. What ties it all together is kindness at the core.
I look forward to getting to know you more. Until then, keep learning!
