News from the Tennessee DEN:
The National Middle Schools Association (NMSA) will host its annual national convention in Houston, TX from November 8 to 10. If you are a STAR DEN member and would like to attend a social gathering of other DEN members while attending the NMSA convention, we need your input.
Finding a space to host us (whether a few or a lot) will take a little time and effort, so we need to know something fairly soon. If you would like to participate in such a gathering, please email Tim Childers (tchilders.den at gmail dot com). Discovery Education has agreed to help us with a budget, so our goal is to make this as “free” as possible for all attendees. When you send your email, include the following information:
- Your Name, email address, and a contact phone number while in Houston
- State of Residence (this is NOT just a TN event)
- Preferred day of event (8th or 9th)
- Would you prefer a “sit down” dinner or a “drop in” session?
We need your email no later than midnight, October 31st, in order to make this happen. We will need ONE email PER ATTENDEE.
Hey, we’ll get together if there are just 2 of us able to do so, but we would love to have a whole big bunch of STAR DEN middle school teachers in attendance. Remember, this is a social gathering, not another workshop for NMSA. We hope to hear from you soon!
Please visit the TN DEN and leave your information there if you are interested in attending.
