At the EdTechWomen Portland meetup last weekend, a small group of us ended up talking in the parking lot for well over an hour after the gathering had officially ended. In response to what seemed like the need to connect with old friends and just catch up on each other’s lives, I decided to organize an informal meetup that takes place the first Saturday of each month at 9 a.m. Dubbed Teachers in Bars (coffee bars!) Getting Coffee (a riff off Jerry Seinfeld’s hilarious web series), this time is for meeting old and new friends, grabbing something to eat and drink and spending time catching up, connecting, sharing cool stuff, getting inspired, hanging out, messing around and geeking out. Our first meeting is right after IntegratED PDX on Saturday, March 1 at 9 a.m. at Crema Bakery & Cafe. Future locations will rotate among local area coffee shops and breakfast joints. Check out the flyer for more information and to RSVP.
