If you had a chance to attend one of the webinars discussing what is coming up for the DEN in 2009, you know there are a lot of exciting new programs coming our way! One of them is the national institute this summer. If you have ever been to a national institute, you know that they are extremely informative and a great way to network with like-minded educators. If you haven’t ever attended, you should try — I’ve heard so many teachers say “my brain’s on overload” after just a day or two of an institute.
This year, the location for the institute is up to us. In early January, the national blog asked us to come up with ideas for locations. The DEN team has narrowed it down to 5 locations and now it is time for us to vote on which one we like best. The choices are: Monterrey, California; Boston, Massachusetts; Washington, D.C.; Las Vegas, Nevada; and of course, a cruise from San Diego to Mexico. Head on over to the National Blog and cast your vote, then watch the blog for details on how to apply to attend.
