Director of Adult Education   

 

Usha

Happy New Year! Ushering in a new year means new resolutions and goals! 

 

So, how about a music, dance or painting class at CACE to speak to your creative side? A mindfulness class might just be what you need to stay calm and engaged. How about completing your high school education to go to college or get that promotion you have always wanted? Our English as a Second Language classes will open up opportunities for you or your family members. If you don’t find what you need, please let us know what else we can offer. 

 

We welcome you to CACE for lifelong learning and look forward to seeing you in our classes. 

 

Thanks,

 

Usha

As a firm believer in the power of adult education to transform lives, I am so honored to be able to serve CACE students and staff as the assistant director. I am proud of the way CACE supports students to finish their high school education, acquire language skills, and prepare for college or careers. In my own career as an adult education ESL teacher, I have always been inspired by the determination and persistence of students working to fulfill their goals. Whether you plan to take a cooking class, refresh your computer skills, or get a high school diploma, we are happy you chose CACE!
