“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.”

Our TET program of the School of Liberal Arts held its Freshmen orientation events on July 9, 2009. What you see here are some of our future teachers! We held a separate session in Crawford 114 where we discussed the program and the new Learning Community Residential unit where these Freshmen will reside together in Onondaga Hall. Many asked insightful questions. We covered such topics as schedules, the language requirement, subject concentrations, lodging, and good living and study practices. Our students will start classes late August and by the 4th week, each will be working with his mentoring teacher either at the elementary, middle, or high school level. Each student will observe his chosen grade level and assist in daily classroom activities during the first semester for a total of 10 hours of fieldwork. In addition, each will be enrolled in the first of two professional education courses: EDU 101 -Introduction to Teaching.
