About Me

Dendick_1My name is Dick Marchessault and I joined the new Discovery Educator Network after traveling across the country for three years as a unitedstreaming trainer. Prior to working for Discovery, I taught English and social studies at Addison Trail High School in Illinois and then worked as a technology training specialist at Niles West High School for several years. I was a conference co-chair for the annual technology conference hosted by the Illinois Computing Educators, and also served as president of the Northern Illinois Computing Educators, an organization devoted to providing presentations and staff development opportunities covering a variety of instructional technology topics to educators in the northern counties of Illinois. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Carleton College in Northfield, MN, and a Master’s degree in Education from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.

    What a tremendous resource it is to be able to (and be encouraged to) use those 15,000 editable clips in “original” student productions. Way to go, unitedstreaming!! That really empowers students to put together great learning stories (as my friend in New Zealand calls them).
