TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been working in education since the 90s. I have taught everything from post-secondary vocational education, to children with autism. I firmly believe that the only way to stay fresh and sane is to work smarter, not harder! The students should be working hard, not the teachers. In my early days, I would spend countless hours creating lessons that I now can buy on Teachers Pay Teachers for a few bucks. Save yourself time and enjoy your life!
