Fourth-year Cassandra Gutterman-Johns is excited to teach, travel, and reach outside her comfort zone with a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in the Czech Republic beginning in August 2022. 

A theater and creative writing major with minors in gender, sexuality, and feminist studies and comparative American studies, Gutterman-Johns will apply the teaching experiences she learned from serving as a course writing associate in the Rhetoric and Composition Department and a creative writing associate in the Creative Writing Program, as well as the skills in creative problem solving, collaboration, and implementing systems for communication and organization through her work in the Theater Department.

This year, she served as the LabSeries Production Manager in the theater department. She has also stage managed a number of mainstage productions and worked in the electrics and paint shops in the theater.

“I’m looking forward to having an immersive experience and stepping outside of my comfort zone, as well as getting to see more of the world after not traveling for a few years and missing out on my study abroad program because of the pandemic,” says Gutterman-Johns, a resident of Salem, Oregon. “I’m hoping to learn more about pedagogy and education, and gain a clearer sense of what career path will be right for me.”
