The Discovery Educator Network hosted multiple community-building events in the Lone Star state this week. Michelle Weeks, Field Manager for North Texas and Oklahoma (Michelle_Weeks@Discovery.com), and Chris Marshall, Field Manager for South Texas (Chris_Marshall@Discovery.com), did an outstanding job planning activities for Discovery Educators at the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) conference.
On Tuesday, over thirty Discovery Educators participated in a full-day pre-conference session which included professional development, networking and lots of fun. Participants learned from a host of Discovery presenters and (more importantly) other Discovery Educators on topics ranging from media kits to sneak peaks of the new DEN portal. Special thanks to all the presenters (pictured here) including: Phyllis Mullane from El Paso ISD, Vanessa Jones, Susan Monahan, Aurturo Guajardo from Austin ISD and Amy Elliott from Sherman ISD.
That night, we were joined by over 150 other unitedstreaming users for dinner at Scholz Garten for fun, food and socialization. I look forward to additional Discovery Educator Network opportunities in the state of Texas and would like to thank everyone for a wonderful trip to the Lone Star state.
