Save the Date!
Teacher Fest is coming! What is it? It is a day long learning festival for teachers, led by teachers. This event is open to ALL secondary teachers. Rarely do we witness an event of such epic proportion. There will be food trucks, fresh ideas to spice up your classroom, as well as a countless number of innovative sessions led by some of Henrico's top teachers. Enjoy a restful summer, but mark your calendars and plan to be in attendance on August 12th so you can be ready to kick off the school year right!

What is Teacher FEST?
  • Teacher FEST is named in honor of you, the Craft Teacher.
  • Teacher FEST is not an outsider-run professional development day, or a technology conference filled with technicians.
  • Teacher FEST is a festival of the Craft Teacher… it’s FUN!
  • Teacher FEST will focus on teacher-to-teacher conversations, with teachers leading sessions on innovation, involvement, individualism and integrity.
  • Teacher FEST will treat you like a professional, free to come and go, and to work around your summer schedule that day.
  • Teacher FEST understands that having free time to be social–or to be making/creating–is critical for the Craft Teacher.
  • Teacher FEST also knows that the Craft Teacher values their time, so we will be host to several local food trucks to provide lunch options, allowing you to continue the conversation with fellow teachers over a meal.
