Guess who is in Denver this Week? NHD Behring Teacher Ambassadors!

On Monday training started for the second cohort of Behring Teacher Ambassadors.  These teachers, all past winners of the Behring Teacher of the Year Award in their respective affiliate programs, applied to be trained at Behring Teacher Ambassadors.  Their training focused on expanding the role of teacher leadership.

All participants arrived in Denver from as far away as Hawaii and enjoyed an opening dinner looking out over Union Station.

The day began with a welcome from April Legg, who works in Educational Outreach at History Colorado.   After an opening session discussing ways to reach new teachers, NHD Deputy Director, Kim Fortney led a session featuring NHD in Mississippi state co-coordinator Renee McClendon and NHD in Colorado co-coordinator Stacey Pendelton.

After some morning training sessions and lunch in the Denver sunshine, the teachers were treated to a tour of the History Colorado museum by School and Teacher Program Developer April Legg and a behind the scenes tour by Curator Natalie Elder.
