To me, the teachers are the most important part of the Cañada College ECE program. Their attitudes, support, and their willingness to help was always at the core of the program's success; without it, we students would have had little interest in learning. The teachers were always available to help: before and after class, in their offices, and by emails. I remember contacting one of my teachers by phone, although she was away to see her family in another state, she answered me promptly, and helped me out. This example left an indelible mark on me and was truly inspiring. In addition, as a student, I was amazed by the teachers' passion, and their devotion to what they teach.
Completing the ECE program in Cañada College is helping me in my studies at the San Francisco State University; I feel like I am building on a solid foundation. When we are studying some topics at SFSU, my interest is easily ignited because I have prior knowledge of the topic. For instance when we studied about temperament in the university classes (flexible, fearful & feisty), it was complementary, never contradictory to the formal lessons at Canada College. Moreover, the 366 Practicum experience, the various class projects, and the extensive group work are very valuable in the continuation of my academic pursuit because I continue to refer them. It is impossible to enumerate all the ways that the ECE program has helped me; the ones listed above are just a few.
