Tracey was the push to get me into the DEN. Her (then) school was one of my assigned schools. She made me assist her at a DEN training and now I have attended Summer Institutes and am on PA LC. I got even with her, though: I convinced her to join our department in support of more teachers and students than just one! We have presented together, attended Summer Institutes together, and work together on special projects. We have expanded our local DEN members to many, and still have fun!
