What better way to “Get in the Swing of Things” for school than to have an awesome Wisconsin DEN event at Miller Park. Recently, about 15 Wisconsin Star DEN members and others gathered for a great afternoon at the Milwaukee Brewer Stadium. The event, held on Friday, August 21, was a great way for DEN members to connect and learn about the latest and greatest there is with Discovery Education.
Rachel Yurk, Wisconsin DEN Chair, Chad Lehman, Wisconsin DEN Blog Coordinator, and Tony Heinowski, a member of the Events Team, helped coordinate this event. Here’s what Rachel had to say about the event, “It was a fantastic opportunity to ‘get your head in the game’ with fellow educators. We need to gather like this to learn more about what we all do and improve our own beast practices.”
The event started with a tour of the beautiful park. After the hour-long tour, DEN members met in a club house room and got an opportunity to hear from Mike Bryant, Wisconsin Discovery Educator Account Manager. Rachel Yurk also presented information about an upcoming Race for the Cure Event.
Fellow Star Educator Rita A. Mortenson was back from the Discovery Student Adventure Trip in China, and was able to give a glimpse into the life of what she and her 4 students from Verona Area High School got a chance to experience while in China.
The event contintued with some door prizes, laughter and great conversation amoung other educators. It was really such a great opportunity to connect with others and learn more about the upcoming Wisconsin and Regional Events. A special thank you to Rachel and others who helped organize this event!
