CCEI Student Spotlight
Flor Torres
Dallas, Texas
My desire to keep learning about how to teach children led me to pursue coursework with ChildCare Education Institute in order to obtain a CDA. I really enjoyed every course I took with CCEI because I would learn so much and would grow as a teacher. The courses were easy to follow and provided a short test at the end of the course. I had no trouble getting through it! It has been a great experience with CCEI because the Education Coaches, and really anyone I would contact if I had an issue or concern, would nicely and happily help me in anything that I need. I would highly recommend CCEI to anyone who is looking to grow in the child care environment! It has been a very pleasant experience and I look forward to completing more courses with CCEI.
