On Thursday, March 4, DEN Stars from across North Carolina and some of their friends met while at NC TIES for  a meeting, a meal and a laugh. After a day of conference chaos and intense ed tech related learning, the more than 25 local educators who met at Mellow Mushroom had the privilege to put faces with names, compare conference notes, eat some great pizza and make plans for spring DEN events coming up soon. The highlight of the event was the opportunity to put the “N’ in DEN – networking, which could also be friendship building!

After sharing about our personal experiences as DEN members and talking about upcoming events like Spring Virtual Conference and Geocaching Day, our STARs-t0-be had the opportunity to ask questions about joining the DEN STAR family and make plans for their first events!

We look forward to growing our NC DEN STAR family and meeting again at NC TIES next year!
