"All of my experience at Berry has prepared me so well for teaching and I use so many things that I learned in my classes at Berry in my classroom each day. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to go to Berry and learn as much as I did.  Thank you so much for all that you did to make me the teacher that I am today!”

"I have really enjoyed my Berry student teachers, their supervisors, and your well-organized teacher education program... I enjoy the fact that your students are involved with the class from pre-planning and the first week of school through the traditional second semester student teaching."
