The Stars Came Out for the Discovery Back to School Night

Discovery Stars and DEN members interested in becoming a Star were shining at the Teacher Training Center in Fleming Island, Florida, Tuesday, August 16.  Over thirty DEN members from three counties met with Kyle Schutt, Manager for Discovery Educator Network, along with Leadership Council Members Trudi Lawson, Janet Hallstrom, Cheryl Woolwine, and Carol Papuga.

Cheryl, Florida LC Chair and Kyle led the group in a discussion of what Discovery has to offer and the advantages of being a STAR.  The DEN members present were complimentary of Discovery as it supports the network of teachers helping and teaching each other.  Kyle was able to connect to a webinar at the end of the meeting for all who were interested.  It was obvious that these teachers were excited about becoming further involved with Discovery, and I personally know of five that have now applied for STAR status.

Everyone knows a single star is bright, but the larger a group of stars is, the brighter is the night.  Let’s recruit more stars so our light shines brighter than ever and we can illuminate the night for others.
