OERB Educators' Retreat

Ardmore — Eighty-one teachers from across the state of Oklahoma spent two days last week touring, participating in and learning all about Oklahoma’s oil and natural gas industry. The teachers attended the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board’s Educators’ Retreat, which took place in Ardmore from June 18–20. The retreat offered two days of hands-on industry experience to teachers, including a fossil dig, an oil refinery tour, a rig tour, a production site tour and two museum tours. Teachers were provided food, lodging, all events and activities and 16 hours of professional development credit for free. Three teachers from Ada attended the retreat: Bekka Rahbusch, who teaches fourth-grade reading at Washington Grade Center; Carla Husband, who teaches seventh- and eighth-grade science at Byng Junior High School; and Susie Edens, who teaches 11th- and 12th-grade biotechnology at Pontotoc Technology Center.
