As we approach our Christmas break throughout Tennessee, your Leadership Council wanted to let you know what we have planned for January and beyond. We’ve been working on getting all our personal information loaded on the blog, and we’ve finally succeeded here. The LC has more than doubled this year, and we are excited about what we will be able to do next year with the extra help. We’ve been able to branch out with more help in South East TN as well as to the far West in Memphis.Teryl Magee is our LC Chair. Teryl was named to the National School Board Association’s “20 to Watch” list of education technology leaders for 2009. She has been our Chair from the beginning, and we just couldn’t envision the job being done by anyone else!Tim Childers is our Blog Coordinator. Tim also serves as the primary photographer and videographer of our events. Like Teryl, he has been the main blogger for the TN LC since its inception.
Karla Halcomb serves as our Events Coordinator. Not only does she coordinate our needs with Discovery, but she also does a bang up job decorating for our events as well. Karla has a real knack for hospitality, and she puts it to good use for the TN LC. Again, she has served as the only Events Coordinator we’ve had.
Sally Walter is the fourth founding member of the TN LC. Sally was also the first Tennessee member of the DEN. Recently, we’ve added Carole Romeiser and Tina Moore from East Tennessee. And we’ve finally worked our way to the West with Gail Braddock, Clif Mims, and Paula Jaenichen from Memphis. Yay, West Tennessee!
We have an extremely active Leadership Council in Tennessee. We are continually offering on-site training for schools and districts in our respective areas. We also present at local, state, and regional conferences to get the word out about the benefits of DE Streaming and the DEN.
In the past we have had events at the TN Aquarium and Best Buy to name a few. The future is also looking bright for Tennessee training opportunities. We think the teachers in Tennessee will love some of the things we have planned for next year. As in the past, we expect to break new ground and set the bar high for other councils across the United States!
We’ve included a new Glog from Glogster that highlights some of our past events and a few websites recommended by our Leadership Council.
One last note. We need your input. We would love to know what you would like to see from your Leadership Council in the great Volunteer state. We’ve put together a short survey to gather opinions and ideas to help guide us as we look toward 2010. Please click the link here and help us out!
