Eeeeek I attended my first TeachMeets this week… That’s right plural: teach meets! I attended the Cov Lead Meet on Tuesday and yesterday I attended the Derby English TeachMeet which was just awesome!

I was presenting so I was nervous but ultimately I was psyched to meet all the wonderful people I have been tweeting since the summer; put some faces to names and avatars! And it was brilliant!
Chris Curtis was a fantastic host and set the sessions up brilliantly. There were a range of short presentations where teachers with a range if roles and experiences shared an idea or a process that works well and from that I got loads of good ideas! In between each presenter we had a nifty little quiz to complete which was a great idea and Ice breaker.

Were were treated to a scrummy cream cake and wonderful selection of resources to take away. It was such a fun and rich experience.

I am classed as a geek at school for my passion and enthusiasm and willingness to go above and beyond to develop as a teacher. But do you know what? I don’t bloody care. If being a geek means spending 5 hours getting to, from and being at a wonderful event with like-minded teachers who are happy to share and discuss teaching and learning then brand me! #geeks
I picked up a plethora of ideas and resources; everyone was so generous.
