Ripley, West Virginia - Southern McGown Teacher Training, Day 4

Yesterday I received my Show and Tell assignment for next year. Can't tell you what it is, its a secret!

Today was our class on How to Teach. Taught by Iris Simpson who has extensive experience as a teacher of Elementary School and Special Needs children along with years of Rug Hooking Teaching experience and credentials.
Iris talked, joked, informed and engaged us. We created bios and brochure write ups. We heard each others teaching experiences and offered suggestions. It was a lively and informative day and aside from the learning, we got to know each other better. 3 of us returned from last years trainee group. There were 3 new trainees this year and 2 that had come over from Southern and joined us for a couple of classes - a fun group.
At lunch I walked behind the cafeteria and found a peaceful pond (one of the Cedar Lakes in the name)

I was hoping to get some pictures of the reflections I had seen yesterday but it was breezier today, reflections weren't as clear.

Wild asters are in bloom.
From the wooded hills above the conference center I could see the rolling countryside around.
This evening it was surprisingly thrilling to witness the Accreditation  of 3 of the women I have come to know through the last two years of attendance. There were tears.
