Celebrating the impact of CCE’s teacher exploration program, CPTP

Earlier this month, student participants, teacher mentors and community partners gathered in Long Beach, California for an evening of celebrating three years of the Community Partnerships for Teacher Pipeline (CPTP), a teaching exploration program that’s part of the Center for Collaborative Education’s (CCE) Educator Pathway.

Many stories from mentors and their mentees were shared during the gala, held at the Renaissance Long Beach Hotel on October 3. Here are excerpts from six heartwarming speeches given that night. Click any quote to be taken to a page where each speech can be accessed in its entirety.
