Cassandra (Cass) Pearson has been working in the early childhood industry since 1994, over 20 years. She has worked in several long day care centre's with all ages and as a nanny whilst studying for her degree. Cass achieved her Diploma in Children's Services and then a Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood by correspondence while working full time so Cass knows what it's like to be a busy and often time poor student.
Cass became a Director for Penrith City Council after getting her degree and then left to have her first child. Cass has been a teacher with TAFE since 2008 and has taught Certificate III and Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care students. Cass has also supported full time, part-time and OTEN TAFE and University students on work placement. Cass also looks after Certificate III 'trainees'.
Cass now has 3 children and is still as passionate as ever about the industry.
