ACSI Southeast Regional Early Education Conference

Saturday March 7th our school hosted the annual gathering of Early Education teachers who meet yearly to train and to eat! There were many exciting classes and vendors to visit. I taught three classes: Science Experiments for Young Children, How to Create Wildlife Habitats at Your School, and Maintaining Animals and Plants in the Classroom. Trudy, our school librarian who is earthy like me, brought her Leopard Gecko for us to see. Can you see that look of pride on her face? Kind of like a mother would show off her baby at an all girl's a.k.a. hen party! Trudy wears this beauty on her shoulder at times when she reads books to the students. This is a very tame and sweet Gecko.
Marina (who is crazy about Hedgie, her husband is jealous) helped me take out Hedgie. True to himself he started hissing, licking, and foaming at the mouth... What a guy that Hedgie. What does Marina see in him anyway? (I'm talking about Hedgie, not Marina's husband) He certainly will never win any "Mr. Congeniality" awards.

I still can't help but like him. For some odd reason, I attracted all kinds of interesting people at these events... Hope to see you all at the Ladies Wildlife Retreat in May!

As I read this, I kept thinking "birds of a feather flock together." :) All you hens look like you had a great time.
