    Teachmeet Sydney Ambassador, Matt Esterman, sharing Why he loves Teachmeets:

    Disclaimer: TeachMeets are informally organised events which facilitate teachers sharing their classroom practice in the presence of other educators. Teachmeets are held at various locations around Australia. The venues we choose are a range of public and private establishments with various levels of risk to patrons. The hosts are responsible only for organising the event to the best of their ability. Attendees take it upon themselves to be responsible for their own safety and security – including that of their property. The venues we use will have their own arrangements for appropriate insurance and, by hosting an event, accept the normal responsibilities of that venue under typical circumstances. The hosts or organisers of TeachMeet events will not accept responsibility for the safety and security of participants or their individual satisfaction with the professional development provided on the day. This includes the presence of people under the age of 18, who must be under the supervision of a nominated parent, guardian or teacher for the duration of the TeachMeet at which they are present.
