Spring is almost here and it's time to Join us for a mind blowing day of first rate professional development at the L&N STEM Academy in downtown Knoxville.

Are you a DEN STAR?
No, but I'd like to learn more
I don't know
As part of the conference, we have included two hours of TeachMeet time. A TeachMeet is a conference run by those in attendance. Do you have a great lesson plan you'd like to share? A website you just can't live without? Some iPad apps you think everyone ought to use? A great classroom management technique? Something else not covered in all of the previous questions? Then YOU will LOVE TeachMeet!
Each session leader will get approximately 20 to 30 minutes to share what they know. If you would like to lead a session (all topics will be considered), please fill out the rest of this form!
I would like to lead a TeachMeet session
Please provide a brief description of your session:
I understand that I may not know if I am selected to present until the morning of the event (although we will do our best to inform everyone at least 24 hours prior). I will be prepared to do my presentation regardless of advance notice. I also understand that my session may not be selected. I will still attend the Virtual Conference.
