ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Some southwest Georgia teachers found themselves back in the classroom Thursday, this time as students.

For the next two days, the Flint Riverquarium is holding free teacher workshops to help teachers learn content behind Georgia Performance Standards, with a focus on sorting non-living and living materials. Teachers learned how to deliver lesson plans with snakes, alligators, and frogs in mind.

"We can bring the kids here and I have a class pet. We have a Leopard Gecko in our classroom and the kids feed it and take care of it every day," said Andrea Stargel, Westwood Elementary Teacher.

Teachers say the Flint Riverquarium offers them a good local resource. The workshops are free to teachers. Another workshop will be held July eighth and ninth for Kindergarten through second grade teachers.
