  • Thank you was Pewter medallions by Cynwrig & Richard [VERY well received]
  • huge turnout - 82 Attendees
  • Practicums / Personna classes should be used again - good response
  • Central rotunda "Atmosphere" layout was VERY popular
  • Info booth needs to be MUCH more visable / Active
  • Room signs / Big Sched. were GOOD
  • Need a teacher lounge organizer/clean-up/restock person
  • Heavy advertising WORKED. (comment that posters were seen everywhere)
  • day is still long - attrition in later classes was noticable as people left
  • fix class run on (classes going past 50 Minutes)
  • suggestion of a "teachers roundtable" room to talk about medieval units
  • good feedback about teachers in general - need better checking of how good
