Event: Kentuck Knob Teacher Training Session

Among them was my good friend Valerie Cortis , with whom I taught on the same floor at Uniontown Area High School for seven years. During the six-hour training days, I gave teachers an in-depth, private tour of the Hagan House and the Sculpture Meadow , then they created lesson plans to take back to their classrooms based on the touring experience and our discussions. And, best of all, each participant received 6 free PDE-Approved ACT 48 Continuing Education Hours. It was so successful, we are going to expand the 2010 teacher training dates . You can find more information about it on the Educational Events Page of the Official Kentuck Knob Website or the Kentuck Knob Blog .
