What I love most about the college is/are the teachers; they are so wonderful. Almost every teacher I've had at Cleveland Community College has been extremely helpful, loving, motivating, and each one has many more characteristics and/or qualities that I could brag about all day long, but overall, I have learned much more than I ever could have imagined possible. I am so thankful for each teacher I've had at Cleveland; it has been an absolute pleasure.
