DEN Spring Training 2008

DEN Spring Training is back! This year the DEN coaches are scouting talent for the All-STAR team as well as looking for some new prospects to join the DEN squad. You have a couple ways to impress the coaches during DEN Spring Training and earn some DEN gear.

Renegotiate Your Contract
Every year STAR Discovery Educators are asked to report at least two events they have conducted in the past school year in order to have their contracts renewed for the following season (i.e., maintain STAR status for next school year). Give your agent some additional leverage to land you a big contract by reporting more than two events.

Recruit a Rookie
We’re always looking for new prospects who can throw a 90 mph fastball or embed a DE streaming video into PowerPoint. If you help us find a rookie sensation, we’ll hook you up with some new DEN gear.

den teeAny STAR DE who recruits a new STAR Discovery Educator before June 6, 2008 will receive a DEN baseball jersey. Note: The STAR DE you recruit must have his/her contract officially signed by June 6, 2008 (i.e., he/she must complete all parts of the application process by June 6).

Help Your Region Win the Pennant
Your DEN Account Managers are looking to you to help them bring home the pennant for your region. The DEN Manager whose region has the most new STAR recruits during DEN Spring Training will win the coveted Discovery Educator Network Louisville Slugger straight from the factory in Kentucky.

    Everyone knows Texas is the biggest and the best! Is there a way to find out what events we’ve already reported so we don’t duplicate?

    I know I’m not DEN anymore – but Matt, the SE Team is going to sweep this one! They’ve got great leadership teams in place, ready to knock this one out of the park! I KNOW the FL team is ready- so SWING Batter Batter!

    OK…I’m like TOTALLY insulted! Second Life is NOT listed!!! How can this be? Not to have a coach? What are we? ‘The Bad News Bears’?…our own ‘Field of Dreams’?…[I’m not well-versed in sports, so if I got the names/sport incorrect please forgive me!] BTW, this is a rogue comment and ‘the views expressed are not necessarily those of the Second Life Leadership Council’.

    Danielle – Florida is and will always be near and dear to my heart. But that’s still not going to stop the Atlantic region from kicking the Southern region’s butt.

  7. Valaina Maher said:

    How do we find out how many events we have reported? I was a new star educator this year and I think I did the 3 required events and wondered if I need to do 3 more to earn the water bottle.

    BTW,Lets go Mid Atlantic Region!!!!!

    HEY! LET ME SEE SOME HANDS UP FOR THE WEST!!! Let’s knock this out of the ball park! 🙂

  9. Teryl Magee said:

    Matt~ That sounds like a challenge, the post reply to Danielle. Do I hear correctly? Hmmm…an inter-region challenge to come? BTW…the views expressed by this TN DEN educator are not necessarily the views of the educator in the state or DEN region. What I mean is Brad has no idea I’ve posted this! : )
