On Monday 16th November, I attended and presented at my first Teach Meet, #TMEssex.
The evening was amazing! So I am going to say this three times…

What is #TeachMeet?
A TeachMeet is an informal gathering of educators who are taking CPD into their own hands. A TeachMeet is organised for those who want to listen to inspiring teachers who do amazing things in their classrooms every day. It is also an opportunity to network, share ideas and join in a growing community of Teachers on Twitter across a specific region.
Learn something new, be amazed, amused and inspired! Anyone can share interesting, useful or innovative ideas in a 2 minute or 7 minute presentation. Presentations can be on any educational topic and about subjects, innovation, strategy or day-to-day work across the curriculum. It really is the best CPD there is and it’s free!
How does it work?
You can simply turn up and watch the presentations, get involved with the online discussion on Twitter, using the dedicated hashtag, or be brave and present and share a 2 or 7 minute presentation. Make sure you sign up for a ticket below and/or sign up to present your topic.
