Twice a year The Green House Educator program is held at The Eddy Village Green in New York. It’s a week long, very intense program to prepare educators from each organization to teach The Green House curricula on site and continue to meet the organizations needs for staff education and growth.
During the past session held earlier this month, team members from Colorado decided to seize the travel opportunity and see the big city before attending Educator. As we often say “it’s all about relationships” and this adventure certainly provided an opportunity for a little team building!
Thanks to Libbie Schuetz, Jamie Arfsten and Amber Morgan from the Washington County Nursing Home in Akron, Colorado for writing the blog below and sharing some fun pictures of their special weekend.
After being asked to become educators for our home we were told that the education was going to be in Albany New York. The first thing we all thought was New York City. We all three agreed that we would probably never get another opportunity to be so close to the city again. So it was decided that we would leave 2 days early and fly into the city.
It was a great adventure and so much to take in, from Time Square, to the Statue of Liberty, and more. The best part of New York City was all of the lights and people in Time Square.
The biggest adventure of the trip might very well have been the taxi ride from the airport to the hotel. It was the first time any of us had been in a taxi and wow how they drive in the city! On Sunday we rode the mega bus to Albany. The most accurate description that anyone in New York gave us was, in New York you walk, stand in line, and eat, which was very true. It was a trip of a lifetime giving us great memories and the opportunity to get to know each other better.
