Ciara Brennan is a teacher in St. Peter's Primary, Bray. She is a PDST Technology in Education Tutor and a part-time lecturer in the Marino Institute of Education. She is currently completing an M.Ed. in Literacy Studies in DCU.
In March 2014, Kathleen and Ciara founded Teachmeet Primary East, a non-profit organisation providing short, snappy CPD to educators via the Teachmeet style. Since hosting over 20 teachmeets, the organisation has evolved into Teachmeet Ireland, in response to an overwhelming demand from educators around the country seeking help in hosting teachmeets. With this in mind, Teachmeet Ireland has also worked with ChangeX, a platform for social innovators, to produce a five-step guide for educators looking to host a Teachmmeet in their locality.
IPPN's 2015 conference played host to Ireland’s first ever Principalmeet and was an outstanding success. We hope by your positive experience with it at Conference 2016 and 2017, you may be tempted to present at either Principalmeet 2018 or Researchmeet 2018.
