Dozens of teachers across the Ozarks find themselves behind the desk today.
More than 75 teachers spent their day learning about how kids retain information.
It's a method of teaching called "brain-based" learning.
Instructors say "brain based learning" helps students grow by teaching them through the positive emotions they may feel.
Instructors say that's done through movement in class, managing stress, and even singing.
Instructor Cheryl Dick says, "we are learning as adults the same exact way children learn. When they leave today, I think they will see that they will remember the content they learned today for years to come."
Instructors say managing stress in the classroom can boost a student's ability to learn and retain information.
