Veteran Teachers Conference

Teachers in Savannah are preparing for the new school year, learning new ways to get their lessons across. This afternoon, 140 veteran teachers wrapped up a two-day conference in downtown. All the teachers have five or more years experience in the classroom, but they still have to update their teaching skills.

They've gone through four different workshops to not only expand their teaching abilities, but to learn new ways to help their students learn.

"As veteran teachers, we have a tendency to fall into a rut and how we're learning new ways to work with students on how to help them improve test scores," said Sylvia Shealy from Marshpoint Elementary.

Teachers will be back in the classrooms on August 9. School starts for students in Chatham County on august 16.
