Hello! I am Cassandra Locklear, English teacher at Red Springs High School in North Carolina. I am also a full time single parent to two wonderful kids. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke in Pembroke, NC with a BA degree in English Education. Before transferring there I was an engineering major at North Carolina State University. There I found my niche for writing. I longed to do something that would give me the tools to help empower others and see the importance of a good education, so I decided to become a teacher. I have been doing it for 4 years now, and I look forward to pursuing my master's in education soon.
