Nationally Recognized Augusta Educator Holds Workshop for Teachers
Augusta, GA- Augusta native Carlene Murphy will share her 45 years of experience in the Richmond County public school system with teachers and administrators from around the country through her nationally recognized approach to professional development for educators known as Whole-Faculty Study Group (WFSG).
The five day educational conference will be held at the Radisson Riverfront Hotel and Conference Center February 19-23, 2003 with daily hours of 8:00am - 4:00pm. Approximately 150 educators from around the United States as well as four from South America are scheduled to attend. Attendees will have 35 educational sessions from which choose in order to learn more about Murphy's WFSG.
WFSG is a student driven approach to professional staff development. Each faculty member at a school is a member of a small study group focusing on designing and improving classroom instruction. Murphy developed this approach during her tenure as an educator for the Richmond County Board of Education from 1974-1992. After her retirement in 1992, she spent several years traveling the country as a consultant for her educational approach.
This is the second educational conference Murphy has hosted in Augusta. The first conference was a WFSG Retreat in July of 2002 and proved to be an enormous success, prompting her to increase the size of the conference and move it to a larger venue at the Radisson Riverfront Hotel and Conference Center.
Murphy is a published writer and key note speaker. She is available for interviews upon request.
