During this time, I also received my teachers permit for pre-school education. Upon completing my education, I joined the Community School for Creative Education (CSCE) five years ago. I started in the Special Education Aid and Vietnamese and Chinese translator position. After I became a more integrated part of the CSCE, I shared hobbies with the students, and now work with students to encourage creativity through handwork. We work on crafts such as crocheting, cross stitching, bracelets, lanyards and so much more. I enjoy working with the students and sharing my love for crafts with the CSCE community.
