TECTA Orientation

Eighteen early childhood educators participated in the Center-Based Orientation held at ETSU Kingsport.

“I enjoyed this Orientation. I would like to say thanks for incorporating HOW to use techniques.”

“Absolutely loved this class. The discussions and learning about what goes on in other classrooms interests me so much. Looked  forward to coming to this class every week.”

“The TECTA Orientation was very informative and fun. I would recommend it to my co-workers.”

“I really enjoyed this Orientation class! It really improved my skills when working with children. I can’t wait to keep going!!”
