Rising Star

David ColeI have found the CLAD Through CTEL Program to be a great fit for me. The readings have been solid and well-selected. My professors are always available, and the flexibility to schedule my time effectively. As a busy educator, it is not easy to prioritize professional development. Not only has the CTEL program helped prepare me to work with EL kids, I am also bringing the writing and assessment strategies to the mainstream classrooms.
