It is nearly time for the Tennessee Association of Middle Schools (TAMS) state conference. This year we are headed to Gatlinburg and the new Smoky Mountain Resort and Water Park Convention Center! The conference is scheduled for June 17 to 19.
The TN DEN LC is working on a social event for STAR DEN members at the conference. While details are still being worked out, I can tell you that we are trying to get together Thursday evening around 7:00 to just visit and get to know our STARs from across the state. Around 8:00 or 8:30 we will move our little shindig to a TAMS event of…..yes, you guessed it….karaoke! Even if you don’t sing, or shouldn’t sing, we will have a blast together listening to (and making fun of) others.
In addition to our fun time together, Teryl and Tim are scheduled to do two presentations during the conference. We are doing a presentation on Building Your Personal Learning Network and another on Digital Storytelling in the Classroom. We would love for you to come join us. They have put us in a room that seats 80, so we need a LOT of people there!
If you haven’t already registered for TAMS, you can do so here. We hope to see you soon!
