I do not know where I would be without Cassandra. Every time I am not sure how I am going to make it, Cassandra is always there! 

Shortly after I started at Green Hills a Canadian girl started volunteering with me. She was great but then she went back to Canada and as she left, I got 3 new students. 

One afternoon I was sitting in my office contemplating how I was ever going to be able to get all of this paper work done and still help students; I really had no idea. 

Just then a very energetic, young girl walked into my office and said, 'I am going to help you.' 
She jumped right in with paper work, students, and anything she could get her hands on, and she did this all without any direction at all. 

Cassandra is taking a gap year between her Junior and Senior year of high school. I asked her when she started working with me what she wanted to do when she grew up and she said, 'maybe an engineer'. 

2 weeks after working with me, I asked her again what she wanted to do when she grew up and she looked at me very excitedly and said, 'I want to be a special education teacher.' 

She is going to make an amazing special education teacher! Cassandra is the back bone of our program here. She makes all the worksheets, makes sure everyone is where they are supposed to me (especially me), and know what is going on everywhere.  

I am blessed to work with Cassandra.
