In today’s episode I welcome back previous guest, and now friend of the podcast, Meghan Raftery. Meghan is the Chief Design Officer of the Edjacent collaborative. Edjacent’s emphasis on placing value in teacher’s stories and improving education on a personal and community level aligned with mine in such a strong way that it was a no-brainer that the Teacher’s Teatime Podcast would feature Edjacent content, and Edjacent would showcase our little podcast. As such, and to celebrate our ongoing alignment with the values of the Edjacent collaborative, I asked Meghan back onto the show to tell us exactly what Edjacent is all about.

If you want to know more you can check out the Edjacent website on, or email Meghan directly, her address is  She’s also active on Twitter @Meg5han. 

I’m really excited about what Edjacent can offer educators at all levels in their careers, from pre-service through to retirees. It’s a tough time to be in education, and the work of everyone in school communities is so important, so groups like Edjacent, which aim to provide a bespoke experience centered on the needs of the educator, are going to play an important role moving forward.

I’m so happy that the Teacher’s Teatime Podcast will be a part of this process. Expect to hear more educator’s stories in future episodes.
