Degrees and Certifications:
B.A. Elementary Education with Early Childhood Education
My name is Cassandra Heeringa. The children refer to me as Ms. Cassie. I began teaching at Crossroads in Fall of 2015. I am originally from St. Paul, Minnesota. In 2008, I graduated from Bethel University with Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. After graduating I moved to Colorado to teach first grade for three years. During that time I met my husband and moved to Utah because that is where he was teaching. I taught for four years in Salt Lake City. Two years of first grade, one year in second grade, and my last year there I taught kindergarten. We moved to Minnesota because we were wanting to start a family and be closer to grandparents. We had a baby in February 2016.
I am currently in my masters program at University of Wisconsin River Falls studying Early Childhood Montessori Education. I am scheduled to graduate in May 2017!
