  • "Thank you CEF for the pen tablets that you purchased for my classroom two years ago. I cannot believe how much the world (and educational system) has changed in such a short time. These tablets have been a tremendous help to our teaching staff and students. I had the opportunity to demonstrate how these tablets could enhance our instructional practice to some of the teachers in our mathematics department. It has changed how we will prepare and deliver some of our instructional components this year. Thank you again for the hard work that you do for our students, staff, and school community. Looking forward to a great school year! " - Carmelo Sortino, CHS Math Teacher
