Last week I had a chance to sit back and reflect on a whirlwind of year! DEN turned 1 and we celebrate in amazing style at Dave and Buster’s in San Diego at NECC. 150 DEN members from 20 different states joined together for an evening of networking and fun.
No 1st Birthday Party would be complete without cone hats and we had 24 different types to choose from. DEN member’s donned their favorite hat and joined others with the same for a scavenger hunt and game extravaganza! Let’s just say there was lots of organized chaos going on! Special thanks to all the Discovery Education Staff for their true SPIRIT in leading their teams in SkeeBall, Dance Revolution, Basketball, Motorcycle, Surfboard, Big Rig riding and more.
Coni Rechner, Vice President of Discovery Educator Network, ended the night with a DEN by the numbers. Thought I would share some of those digits with you….
