Resources For Busy Teachers

You are doing a great job. Let us help.


The Story

Hi. 

I'm Tom. I'm a thirty-something Maths teacher from Manchester.

Back in January 2013, I became a dad to Sam (the little guy in the photo). At the time, my life was like that of many Maths teachers. Planning, marking and reporting data filled my every moment. Evenings and weekends were full of work. I wanted to do a good job for the students in my class, so I gave it everything I had.

But when Sam came along, I knew that something had to give. The idea of throwing myself into my work and missing the first couple of years of my boy's life didn't appeal to me at all, so I ended up making the (difficult) decision to drop my hours at school and pick up some tutoring work to make up the income that I would be losing.

As difficult as this decision was at the time, it is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I have been able to build a life that I love. As well as my work with my students, I am able to spend good chunks of my days hanging out with my amazing son (and with my equally amazing daughter Elsie who was added to the family in 2016).

My goal in making these resources is to help you create a life that you love too. Going part-time isn't  the right answer for everybody, but the challenge is there for us all - how do we deliver excellent teaching to our students and at the same time enjoy our friends, our families and our lives?

I know that back in 2013, it would have made all the difference for me if I had access to ready-made resources, full of great ideas that I could tweak to fit my classes, and that were able to meet the high standards that I hold. 

If you can identify with this struggle, then these resources are for you. I have created exactly what I would have loved to have had access to. Complete lessons, schemes of work, revision packs, student worksheets and other interactive activities. If there are other types of resources you would like adding to the collection, drop me an email to [email protected] and I'll see what I can do.

Hopefully, together we can excel in our teaching and enjoy the important things in life.
