What Our Students Say
My name is Dawn. I am a mother of three adult children and have a wonderful two-year-old grandson, and I am currently working toward my Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education/Child and Family Studies.
I know that I’m benefiting from what I’m learning in my classes, and the children at work are benefiting too. When they have challenging behavior, I am now able to help them in a way that helps them learn as well. I am very glad that I made the decision to go back to school, and I know that I chose the right college.
