A bitter sweet empathy .My journey from class teacher to speaker

My journey to Educating Northants

My journey began back in October. As a newbee to twitter I was scrolling  through tweets and something caught my eye.....Educating Northants, it sounded local and educational, I was hooked..

 

I submitted my proposal and thought no more.....Then lo and behold early December I found out I was in....

As a class teacher I had never done anything like this before. So fear and excitement were rolled into one.

 

Fast forward to Saturday  30th March. What an amazing day . The venue was fantastic. The organisation of the event was impressive. The atmosphere was a cross between a carnival and  a wedding...

My session went really well mainly because everyone attending was so lovely especially Colin Green who took me under his wing and has continued to keep in touch since.

 

As a first time speaker I couldn't have felt any  more at ease. I hope this is the start of my journey into more 'gigs'

Thank you to Educating Northants for giving me this amazing experience
