Here is my application for the DEN Summer Institute in Montana this summer. I was lucky enough to attended DEN Summer Institute in Boston in July 2010. Where I met some wonderful educators from around the country, learned a ton and brought back many wonderful ideas I still use in my classroom today. I really want to be chosen to attend this year's event and each week I open up the DEN Update email hoping and praying my name will make that list. So far, I have not been part of the lucky few, but my fingers are still crossed that by March 26th it will be.
