Call me insane, but one thing I have always loved about teaching is designing and creating my own resources. I believe that the quality and attractiveness of the resources we use in the classroom have the ability to either deter or intrigue curious learners. There's over 10 years teaching experience embedded into all of my resources and over the years I feel I have got a knack for what works and what doesn't. Explore my range of resources in my shop and be sure to let me know how you get on!
