Thursday March 14, 2014 a gold nugget was dangled in front of me from my TLC trainer Katie Higgins when she told me about a professional development opportunity called Den Summer Institute. There was a rigorous application process, which included a video of yourself using a Discovery Ed resource in some way with the students. Great I thought! I can so this I want to do this. So after some research I dove in! I found myself at the Apple Store in South Point Mall learning about i-movie. Of course I had to use my 8th grade sons new laptop. A week later I had submitted a video and explanation of why I was deserving. All I had to do now was wait.
The Big Reveal Day was March 31st. I had waited all day as I was on break at a camp ground. After checking my email several times it came through I was in!!!! I did the happy Dance!!! I jump up and down and yelled with my youngest son! Beaming I called my colleagues and could not believe they choose me!
My journey had taken a twist!
