COLLIER CO., Fla - Dozens of Collier County teachers spent Friday afternoon protesting in Marco Island.  The teachers stood outside the Hilton Resort & Spa, where district administrators are holding a weekend retreat.  The district raised more than $100,000.00 for the weekend through different sponsors.  Even though they're not using tax payer dollars for the event, teachers still feel like it's a slap in the face.  The school district says they are attending a leadership conference focusing on communications skills, team building, problem solving.
