Calling all Nerdfighters in or around Alameda, CA to help a teacher nerdfighter out?!

Hello, I'm a high school English teacher in the Bay Area in California, and as such, I'm perhaps one of the older (I don't dare say 'oldest') Nerdfighters on this here Ning.  Perhaps being as old as I am, and generally out of the loop, I missed the pre-order boat for the box set for The Fault in Our Stars audiobook - you know, the one where John Green himself is reading?  I teach at Encinal High School in Alameda, CA and have been searching for fellow nerdfighters.  I'm considering putting it…See More

Teacher Nerdfighters!

We're teachers and we're nerdfighters. The two are practically synonymous with each other.

Unfortunately, I do not have that audiobook.

:(

I wish I did though!  Sorry!

And let's hope that more people will show up soon.  From what I can tell, the announcements are hard to hear, so maybe they just missed them.

Hi Ms. Kim!

My name's Michelle and I'm a senior at ACLC, the school sharing a campus with EHS.  I heard the announcement over the the intercom today about a Nerdfighter meeting but I didn't manage to catch the room you were meeting in.  I tried to find it during lunch when I roamed around the school asking people if they had heard the announcement too but I was met with a lot of no's.  

I was wondering if there was a nerdfighter community at EHS, and if there is, can I stop by sometime to chat?  I have a few other nerdfighters that I've converted who might be interested in joining you guys for a book discussion on TFIOS or anything else really.

Thanks for your time!

Michelle T.
