Ms. Cassie was born and raised right here in Denver. As she is the oldest of 5, all younger brothers, she has always been caring for children. Professionally, first she worked as a preschool teacher and then as a nanny for the last 15 years in the Stapleton and Park Hill neighborhood. Recently Ms. Cassie has been working as a paraprofessional in DPS at Escalante Biggs Academy. She has two children of her own, a 4 year old daughter and a 6 year old son. Ms. Cassie has a real passion for children's literature as well as art and is able to bring those together with her monthly Bedtime Story Art workshop here at the neighborhood art studio. When she's not at the studio, Ms. Cassie loves taking her family out to the library, museums and the movies!
Ms. Cassie's favorite part of working at the neighborhood art studio is watching the different ways children approach the same project. It's amazing to see their differences and strengths so clearly represented.
