I'm a Biology teacher from the South West. I love Biology but I've specialised in teaching chemistry for the past 5 years. I never really got on with other resources, as I quite like to tailor everything to my own students and to my style of teaching. So I started making my own worksheets and was quite surprised when they were successful! Every resource is one that I've made and used within my own classroom - so you can rest assured that they've all been tested in the field!
