By Jay Polk - bio | email

TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Wind power was just one of the many topics covered at a conference for educators that opened Friday.

More than 100 participants from both in and out of the classroom came from around the state to the U-G-A Conference Center in Tifton for a series of lectures on topics such as sustainability.

Both the presenters and the guests learned lessons that they'll be able to take back to their classrooms.

"We did an activity where the people learn about overfishing and sustainability with fishing and we talked about water and the importance of water and water conservation," said Kelley Jordan-Monne, a presenter at the conference.

"It gives me some good ideas on how to reach students and work with students in the classroom," said Susan Pearson, a teacher from Moultrie.

The conference continues Friday night with a dinner and social and concludes Saturday with more presentations.
