Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me

Kate Clanchy

Date and time

Festival Hub


Teacher and writer Kate Clanchy wants to change the world and thinks school is an excellent place to do it. Join her as she explains everything about sex to a classroom of 13 year olds, or nurtures her multicultural poetry group, full of migrants and refugees, watching them find their voice and produce work of heart-breaking brilliance. Whilst Kate doesn’t deny stinging humiliations or hide painful accidents, she celebrates this most creative, passionate and practically useful of jobs.
