Need Teacher Recertification? Get [email protected]


This year, teachers’ mettle was tested as they were tasked to take classroom curriculum to online overnight due to the Coronavirus pandemic that closed schools nationwide.

While this school year may be coming to a close, a teacher’s work is never done. Summer will find many teachers taking the opportunity earn CEUs towards their recertification and CCBC will be there for them offering a wide variety of online options to help them fulfill those requirements.

In order to maintain their certification, Maryland teachers are required to take six-credits of instruction every five years. CCBC’s Teacher Education Program has multiple course options for teachers at the early childhood, elementary, middle school and high school level, as well as those working or interested in special populations.

When Life’s on Hold…Learning Doesn’t Have to Be!


As we all learn to do more from home, many people are exploring online training options that they can access from anywhere. CCBC has been working with ed2go for years to provide online classes for people who want to sharpen their skills or just have some fun.

Ed2go offers 6-week classes that focus on personal enrichment, business, languages, IT/computer skills, writing, job training and more.  These are instructor-led classes that students can take on their own time; some people like working early in the morning while others are night owls. Classes can fit any schedule. “The topics range from computer classes, to opening your own business and even Digital Scrapbooking,” said CCBC online coordinator Gail Wachter. “Some people use these classes to get started on a new language.”

What’s different about these classes versus many other online options is that there is an instructor to answer your questions…and there are no grades involved!

Terry has been leading group travel for more than 20 years and knows many travel tricks that make every trip an adventure. “Our excursions are exciting, fun and really do provide ways you can learn and grow…or, at the very least, see something new and different,” she said.
