Parris Island, SC - The Educators Workshop at the Marine base at Parris Island, South Carolina kicked off Wednesday.
In the workshop, every day people are put through the basics of what Marine recruits experience while training during boot camp.
WALB's Re-Essa Buckels was invited to attend the workshop and she prepared for it for weeks before leaving Tuesday.
During the first day of training, Re-Essa joined the recruits in an early morning run and workout and got to fire a rifle during a simulation.
She caught up with the two Dougherty County teachers who also made the journey to see what their thoughts were after the initial day.
