Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, September 18, 2014 2014 Fall In- Rec p by Southwest Regional Adult Education held its 2014 Fail In-service and Outreach, Recruitment, and Retention Planning Retreat for instructors on September 6 from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM. The meeting was held at the regional office, which is located in the Russell County Career and Technology Center in Lebanon. Nineteen adult education practitioners from Buchanan, Dickenson, Russell, and Tazewell Counties attend- ed the training. This training is an annu- al event that helps prepare instructors and staff for the opening of classes for the fall semester. Linda Allen, Regional Program Manager, stated that her goals for the training were "to provide quality profes- sional development that supports continuous pro- gram improvement and to increase and improve out- reach, recruitment and retention efforts to ensure that enrollment targets are met by June 30, 2015." Due to the changes the 2014 GED test, there were many changes in pro- gram policies and proce- dures that were presented during the first half of the training. The regional office staff presented updates from the Office of Adult Education and Literacy, changes in data reporting, changes regard- ing GED testing, changes for classes held in correc- tional facilities, and updates on professional development. Then five P!uggedInVA instructors talked about their experi- ence teaching in the four programs that took place during the summer months, and Linda Allen discussed proposed PluggedInVA programs for 2014-15. The second half of the day was focused on out- reach, recruitment, and retention strategies. Previously used methods of outreach were dis- cussed, and then teacher groups representing each county brainstormed together to come up with additional methods which instructors can utilize to recruit and retain students for their classes. The remainder of the afternoon was spent looking at how various classroom instruc- tional tools can be utilized in a way that is relevant to the educational needs of adult learners. Linda Allen commented, "We have to create an environment where our students want to spend time." Technology training will definitely be incorporated into every classroom in order to pre- pare leamers to take the computer-based GED test and to become career- or college-ready. The training, as a whole, was a mind-stretch- ing event that will prepare andmotivate instructors as they reopen classes. The fall session kicks off on Monday, September 8; classes are offered free of charge and are held at con- venient times and locations throughout the region.

Putting Satan in his place I remember one time on a construction job in Tennessee, the foreman was giving an employee a real hard time. This went on just about every day. I had to take sides with the employee because the fore- man was prejudice, mean, ugly, hateful and probably devil possessed. Until one day, that old boy just walked up to his face and said, "The Bible says in John 14:27 let not your heart be troubled and nei- ther let it be afraid. And if you think I'm scared of the moral of those stories is there is a time when you have to put Satan in his place as Jesus did when he went up on the mountain fasting for 40 days and 40 nights being tempted by the devil. On three differ- ent occasions he had to tell Satan to get behind him. And he also told him what was written. It may come a time, or it's already here, that we'll have to stand and tell Satan. "This is written: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart and Him only thou serve. ture somewhere in the Holy Bible that you can use to defeat that gainsayer. I remember the story of the atheist and the Christian. That atheist said to the Christian, "Why, the Bible is completely wrong in where that it talks about Moses bringing the chil- dren across the Red Sea through the form of a mira- cle. Why, that was all false. Science has taught us that there was a place at that time where the water in the Red Sea was only ankle deep. That made the old you, boss man, you've Thou shall have no other boy shout. He lifted his course number for RPK160 probably got another gods before me, neither hands to Heaven and said, Wilderness First Aid is thought coming." shall there be any after me. "My God!
