When did you become a DEN member?

March 2012


What’s your favorite thing about being a DEN member?

I love the family feeling! In less than a year I have acquired many new friends that have made me feel so welcomed and loved in this circle. I am connected through Edmodo and Twitter to the finest educators around. I know that I can ask any question and nothing is considered unimportant. I am in a secret DENmance with everyone from DENSI 2012 and I am excited to continue this journey. Although I have been in education quite a while, the DEN is molding me into a new type of educator and I am happy to be the clay.


What’s your teaching super power?

Adding more hours to the day!


If you could be any fictional character, who would you be? Why?

I would be ANNIE from the musical. I have been a teacher for many years but have always felt “orphaned” because I tried to do it on my own. Since joining the DEN, I am now part of a wonderful educational network and I honestly can’t wait until TOMORROW to see what happens next.
