Just read another great DEN blog from Chad Lehman, Give DEN #thanks. I think it will be very interesting to read all about those who helped encourage us to join the DEN and become DEN stars. I am thrilled to be one of the stars in the DEN Galaxy. I love watching how each of us twinkle. So I decided to share my story:
I would like to send #DENthanks to Ronique Hicks. She provided professional development to our school district. At her closing, she did a brief overview of the DEN. Her joy shined through as she discussed her participation. She encouraged us to sign up during the coming days. I signed up that night. The timing was amazing. Because of Ronique’s invite to the DEN I was able to attend an amazing event with Hall Davidson in a small group of maybe 25 educators for fun and integration ideas. I had such fun that I was hooked. I offered to join the Leadership Council as a blogger. Fate had other ideas. Out of other necessities in the DEN I became the events coordinator. Then I became a co-chair. Then I became a chair of the NYDENLC.
I love so many of my DEN friends the list is too long… just look at my Twitter or my Facebook. We aren’t just DEN friends. We are true friends. But my #DENthanks need to go to Ronique for originally inviting me to the DEN.
