The educator takes on Aggieland...

While the other fearless Village People were holding down "the fort" here at Log Cabin Village last week, I (Rena--the educator) was afforded the privilege of traveling to Bryan-College Station for the Texas Association of Museums Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting is a special occasion for many reasons. It is a wonderful time in which to network and reconnect with colleagues. It provides countless opportunities to learn about advancements in the museum field through thought-provoking sessions, speeches, and off-site trips. And it allows museum professionals like myself the chance to "recharge" creative batteries for a few days while gaining valuable knowledge that will be applied to improve the Village and visitor experience. This meeting was extra special because my wonderful coworkers and colleagues bestowed a very special award upon me: the Texas Association of Museum Educator's Committee Educator of the Year award. I am truly humbled and honored.

Since the Texas Association of Museums and its annual meeting is so important to Log Cabin Village, we thought y'all might like to see just a glimpse of what I experienced last week. Enjoy!
