"My name is Anliet Calzadilla. I'm from Cuba. I came to the United States in 2006, and I never felt more at home in this country until I decided to go back to school. I started with TECTA Infant/Toddler Orientation in 2016, and then I finished my CDA in June of 2016. Now I'm working on my Associates in Early Childhood Education. For me it is a hard process because my English is not perfect, but thank you Emily and Crystal for always encouraging me to continue doing it. Thank you TECTA for helping me in everything I need and giving me the opportunity to grow in the Early Childhood Education. That is my passion, and without your help I could not do it." - Anliet Calzadilla
TECTA at RSCC is funded by Center of Excellence for Learning Sciences at Tennessee State University through a contract with the Department of Human Services.
