Hi, welcome to my shop. I have over 15 years teaching experience and have enjoyed every moment of inspiration and achievement. Have a look at the different resources available, try the free stuff and get some ideas for yourself. I have tested all the resources with classes that I teach and refined them before publishing so that common misconceptions are addressed in the material or explained in the teacher notes. Every step is explained as simply as possible without wasting time on repetition.
