Local Educators Collaborate at Southeastern Illinois College

September 26, 2013

More than 30 local educators converged on Southeastern Illinois College’s Harrisburg campus on Sept. 20, for the Creating Connections faculty workshop. High school instructors in both math and English discussed strategies to meet national standards and shared ideas with their colleagues during the event called “Bridging the Gap.”

High schools represented at the event included Carmi, Carrier Mills, Galatia, Gallatin County, Hardin County, Harrisburg, Norris City-Omaha-Enfield, and Pope County. A trained team of local educators led the discussion, including Cathy Wall from Harrisburg High School, Kacy Tison from Pope County High School, Allan Kimball from Southeastern Illinois College, Jenny Billman from Southeastern Illinois College, and Jack Mummert from Southeastern Illinois College.

The event was sponsored by the Illinois Community College Board, the Illinois State Board of Education, and the Illinois Board of High Education with the support of the Regional Office of Education.
