Gulfport, Mississippi - No one is born a teacher. Sure, some are more suited to step in front of class and dispense knowledge then others, but sharing that knowledge in a fashion that embeds the lesson in a student’s mind requires more than natural ability. And that’s part of what they were teaching at the NRA Training Counselor Workshop in Gulfport.

“It was an intense, rewarding weekend,” said workshop student Andrea Cerwinske. “Three days from morning to night with an exceptional group of instructors.”

Led by NRA Education & Training’s John Howard and Andy Lander, the seminar also had the privilege of hearing from Master Training Counselor Tom Monahan out of Florida. (The designation of “Master Training Counselor” has been retired. Tom is one of the few who still holds the title.)
