“What was great about the TET (Teacher Education Transfer) program at Morrisville is it provided me with the opportunity to participate in several observations of teachers in the Morrisville-Eaton Central School District. Right from my freshman year I was able to observe and even teach my own lesson plans. This gave me more confidence and an advantage over other students when it came time to student-teach during my senior year in college.”
