The Discovery Educator Network held a social gathering on the Monday of ASTE to celebrate the launch of the Alaska Leadership Council (LC Members shown to the right: Ross Johnson, Jessica Cook, and LC Chair Marilyn Doore) and to spread the DEN word to other Discovery Education users. The evening event, held at the Glacier Brewhouse in Anchorage, was a great success. Educators from across Alaska gathered to learn about the Discovery Educator Network and all that it has to offer. Educators networked with each other and relaxed after a long day of learning at the conference. LC Chair Marilyn Doore introduced LC members in attendance at the event. Everyone enjoyed great food and beverages, walked away with some fabulous DEN prizes and most importantly, met some new colleagues and learned about the fabulous teacher community known as the DEN! After viewing the Meet the DEN video, DEN Account Manager Lindsay Hopkins tossed out some trivia questions related to the STAR Educator program and with correct answers, educators scored some nice DEN swag.
The excitement over the DEN and the STAR Discovery Educator program could certainly be felt throughout the evening and the it will be great to see more STARS shining in the great state of Alaska! Pictured on the left are enthusiastic educators who hope to become enthusiastic DEN STARS!
