CCEI Student Spotlight
Tashin Laskar
Avon, CT
I have learned so much from the CCEI course materials. I’ve had a tremendous learning experience with high quality programs and guidance from CCEI and I plan to receive further coursework or credentials. A special thanks to my Education Coach at CCEI for the duration of my coursework starting from May 2019. She constantly encouraged me to stay on track to complete 4-5 courses per week as a habit to work consistently. I sincerely appreciate her dedication, the time she invested in me, and the fact that she tracked the timeline on student progress (more so for full-time working professional mothers like us).  I would absolutely recommend CCEI! I’ve already started to advocate CCEI to fellow assistant teachers and a few have asked me to share my CDA professional portfolio for reference.
