What our CDA students are saying:
“This was a great course, and I am forever grateful for everything I have learned.”
“Great class! I learned a lot from this CDA class. I’m more aware of the different aspects in the classroom. I’m more aware about having better relationships with the students, parents and other teachers.”
“Being able to work at my own pace and having everything we will need for the class already was so helpful and great!”
“My favorite thing about the class is, when I message my instructor she is quick [to respond]. Also that all the information and units are very useful and clear on understanding.”
“[I liked] the fact I could use the chat to answer questions and get involved in group discussions.”
