Favorite Things About Working at CCA
The students. The freedom to run my class that best fits the students, including playing dodge ball, cooking and baking for or with the class, field trips (Salvation Army, Letchworth, whatever strikes our fancy). The contact with the students even after they graduate.
Way too many to count.
