Monterey Bay FELI

  • cabrillo college 6500 Soquel Dr Aptos, CA, 95003 United States (map)

This will be the twelth FELI hosted on the campus of Cabrillo College in Aptos California. The ACE program began at Cabrillo,  with the first ACE student cohort of students in the Fall of 2003 on the Watsonville campus.  In the Winter FELI 2014 that relationship continued as employees from the city of Watsonville attended and contributed a rich community-based organization's perspective.  Since that institute the Monterey winter and summer FELIs have become known for their diverse mix of different colleges colleagues and community members.

The FELI was amazing. The most important part of the FELI for me was telling my story. It truly was a transformative experience. I also find the working styles, communication, and emotion/perception material quite useful. Finally, I plan to use the L & L activities with my own students.
