Mrs. Cassandra Watters
I began teaching in Broward County 20 years ago. Each day, I utilize my creative, organizational, and technology skills to provide my students with a quality education that meets their individual needs, builds their self-worth and helps them to develop into enthusiastic and independent learners.
I am a native Floridian who loves the Florida sun and surf. I was born in Hialeah and began my formal education there. Then, my family relocated to Pembroke Pines in 1980.
I graduated from Broward Community College with an Associates Degree in Mass Communications and continued my education in Orlando. At the University of Central Florida, I graduated with a degree in Business Administration and a specialty in Hospitality Management.
After working in the special events industry, I taught adult education for several years specializing in computers, desktop publishing, the internet and web design. Because I enjoyed teaching so much, I decided to go back to school for Elementary Education at Florida Atlantic University.
As a teacher, I am rewarded each day with the opportunity to share a love of learning with students. I have taught first grade for over 15 years and it is my favorite grade to teach. I have also taught second and third grade which afforded me the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the progression of the Florida Standards and the importance of the first grade foundation.
A few years ago, my entire family decided to relocate to the Ocala area. We are completely in love with Ocala's family atmosphere, beautiful landscape, and friendly residents. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family traveling to local spots of interest. I love cruising the Carribean and visiting Disney World. My hobbies include reading, the computer arts, scrapbooking, music, completing mazes and puzzles, coloring mandalas, and learning about new technologies.
