Congratulations go to Alyssa Easton who, this June, became part of the first graduating class from Fanshawe College’s Community Integration through Cooperative Education (CICE) program! Way to go, Alyssa!
This two-year program involves a modified interview as part of the entrance requirement, after which Alyssa found herself partaking of 2 ECE (Early Childhood Education) classes as well as 3 CICE courses, wherein she learned such skills as dressing for interviews and time management.
Her first year involved having to give a presentation on her areas of interest and she also found herself with two volunteer opportunities – working at Beacock library and selling cookies at Fanshawe.
Alyssa worked at Pizza Hut for ten years, portioning food and dishwashing. Her future goals involve working with babies or pre-schoolers in a daycare setting. Currently she is working afternoons at Simply Kids, picking young children up at school and returning them to their daycare and also assisting with lunch coverage.
Congrats, once again, on graduating, Alyssa, it looks as though you have an amazing future ahead of you!
