After much anticipation, the Discovery Educator Network has officially launched in the Sunshine State. Discovery welcomes our two most recent Field Managers Karen Seddon (Karen_Seddon@Discovery.com) and Danielle Abernethy (Danielle_Abernethy@Discovery.com). Both Karen and Danielle are skilled educators, trainers and community builders and we are ecstatic to have them join our team.
This Wednesday, the three of us had the pleasure to visit the Polk County Public Schools and witness their extraordinary efforts to roll out unitedstreaming, providing nine full-day workshops to teachers across the district. Kay Teehan and Peggy Koren have done an incredible job informing and inspiring teachers on ways digital media can enrich teaching and learning.
On Thursday, we hosted a dinner for over thirty Discovery Educators from the Osceola County School District. Karen kicked off the event with introductions followed by an incredible sample lesson. After dinner (and wonderful networking with others) we had some trivia. Mark Hall, Production Teacher at Saint Cloud High School and Discovery Educator, loaded some questions and with his wireless response system engaged teachers in a fun (and somewhat competitive) test of their unitedstreaming knowledge.
I look forward to great Discovery Educator Network opportunities in the state of Florida and would like to thank everyone for a wonderful trip to the Sunshine State. Look for Karen and Danielle’s blog and their upcoming announcement related to an event in conjunction with FETC.
