There and back again!



Well, my bus is pulling back in Atlanta and we are about to unload at the Aquarium. I am sad that this week is over! Truly, I have never participated in a group activity where everyone got along as well as this Creeks to Coast workshop. I will be sharing a few parting thoughts and photos over the next few days.

Here is a link to a news story about our ...

Moving down the state.


I have not done very well with posting every night as I had hoped! We literally get on the bus every morning at 7:00 and get to our hotels about 8:30 or 9:00 in the evenings. After debriefing and getting settled in our rooms, I usually fall in bed, too tired to do anything. The last few days have been amazing- we toured Georgia Power's hydroelectric power plant at Bartlett Ferry (even saw the turbine ...

Back on the Road...


The last time I posted on this blog was July 2009 as I was leaving Tanzania. I believe it high time to update folks and my upcoming "Creeks to Coast Educator's Workshop" provides me a perfect opportunity. I, along with 19 other educators, have been selected to participate in a weeklong immersive educational program led by Kim Morris-Zarneke, Georgia Aquarium's Manager of Interpretive Programs. Funding for the week is graciously provided by Georgia Aquarium, Southern ...
