Cortland hosted it's 2011 version of the Cortland Mini-Conference on October 7th. This was my first year of attending the conference. To look back on the day, I had a very fun day. I took in a lot of information that I could use when I become a teacher. The keynote speaker was Dr. Sarah Armstrong. She spent time talking about how the brain works, and it's role in physical education. One thing that she talked about was how after children leave high school, only 30% of them stay active throughout their lifetime. That is a very shocking low number. I personally believe that this number should be up to about 60% if not 70%. We wonder why obesity is so high in America, and this is a reason why.
