Early childhood education is not just a degree that you earn or a career you embrace; it is a whole life dedicated to helping not just young children but their families as well. It is a choice that you make to positively influence other people's lives. At Cañada College, I found the excellent support for me as a student, as an individual, and as a part of a coherent, caring community. Professors, mentors and counselors were there for me every step of the way. They were there leading my hand - just like I am leading little children's hands now - to help me reach my goal of obtaining my associate degree in early childhood education. Today, I am proud to be a graduate student with a 4.0 GPA who also holds an associate degree in ECE and a bachelor’s degree in French language.
Acknowledgements would never express how deeply I was touched by Cañada College and its finest, elite professors. I cannot show enough gratitude to people like Mrs Sue Eftekhari, the ECE Program Services Coordinator and many faculty who wrote my successful story with their priceless knowledge, unconditional love, and beloved smiles. Thank you.
