It’s Friday afternoon, and don’t know if you all are as tired as I am….but I’m exhausted. It was the greatest week. I wanted to give a few brief thoughts and will post more soon. First, Texas educators ROCK! What a great place to learn, enjoy new friends, and share ideas! Not that I am prejudice but I have to say how great these Texans are….and we know how to have fun. Everyone was so nice, welcoming, and excited about the ideas and potential of the DEN. Second, it was such a great experience to connect all these names from emails and voices to actual people! Finally, I was very humbled to show-off our DEN to my directors and managers of the national DEN. You proved to be amazing educators that are inspirational to the people you meet everyday!
