Teresa is a Secondary teacher from New Zealand  who loves a good Pub Quiz Night and an opportunity to meet like-minded people...

Protocol Education's Facebook  Twitter - Pinterest

I was lucky when I first arrived in the UK - I had a support network of family and friends already here and a pub quiz team spot with my name on it. 

I didn’t, however, know any teachers at all, so the opportunity to join in a couple of Protocol Education events was too good to pass up.  I love an evening of theatre, so soon joined the theatre club but I also really liked the pub quiz.

I love a quiz.  The chance to look like a clever-clogs and earn the undying respect (?) of my peers.  What could be better?  So I’m devastated that I have a parent evening on the date of the Protocol Education London Pub Quiz (Ed: Thursday 2nd of May!! Invite here).

Did you know that search engines are changing the way in which our brains store information?  People are less likely to remember facts if they know they can just google things.  People now are more likely to remember how to access the information rather than what the information actually is.  So put aside the smart phone and dig out the information you have in your head.

If you’re new in town and feeling lost, these social events are great ways of meeting new people and seeing your consultants in a different environment. Plus, you might even win!

I walked into the crowded city pub, knowing no-one at all.  I sneaked upstairs to where the quiz was being held.  The laughter here was even louder; I was greeted by Protocol Education staff, put into my assigned team and given a glass of wine. The usual questions of where/what do you teach were dispensed with as we got started on the first round.  Chaos ensued as we competed for the coveted prize.   I learnt a few new facts, had a couple of glasses of wine and some dinner, and most importantly, discovered that my experience of supply teaching in a new country was no different to everyone else’s.

One cannot be always laughing at people without now and then stumbling on something witty.
