A few months ago, I impulsively applied to be a DEN GURU. — truly was impulsive. I put together the training presentation I was to do, rewrote it the day before, and shared. And I was chosen as one of the 5 Guru’s for this year. Now, before you get too excited….I am not overly thrilled with the term guru — but I do like what Discovery Education does — especially the free resources they so generously offer…..so I will shrug off that name and just re-label myself as an ambassador.
But then I lost my momentum — not sure why — but everything in my life, except for O.R.E.O. and GTW got pushed to the back burner. In fact, I seriously contemplated calling Steve Dembo and asking to be relinquished of my DEN “guru-ness”. But to be honest….my friendship and loyalty to Steve and the awkwardness I would be possibly creating from now on at any event that our paths crossed — and also (in the end) my desire to help others won out.
And I decided that Wednesdays would become DENSday. No matter how busy my life became, Wednesday would be the day that I spent discovering Discovery and then sharing out these thoughts.
So — every Wednesday — from now on, I will be posting here: Thoughts From Jen About Den.
I will be showcasing resources I am finding for Discovery Education members but also highlighting all the free resources they have available as well.
It took me a bit of time to get the ball rolling on this one……but my momentum is now getting started and I will be enjoying showing you some new ideas to use in your classroom.
So feel free to join me there…..or here…..since I probably will be cross-posting.
See you soon
