I initially took post-secondary studies to become a middle-school teacher but I switched majors and received a Bachelors of Science in Pharmacy. I still teach people daily, but now I teach them about medication and health tips. I started creating crossword puzzles for myself in my final year of Pharmacy School to help me "ease into studying." I had so much to study, but still I'd procrastinate. I told myself I'd do the puzzles for just a couple of minutes, and sure enough those minutes would turn into hours of focused studying. I received some of the best grades of my academic career that year. I can't say it was all the puzzles, but actually engaging in your work and not just skimming over it makes a huge difference. I went on to create a couple softcover books for post-secondary Pharmacy and nursing students that I sell at various bookstores and on my website. But honestly, I get enough of pharmacy in my day job, and my creative side doesn't get nurtured in pharmacy, so I'm transitioning into creating puzzles for kids. I aim to be a "go-to" place for worksheets for early finishers.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy and am a Registered Pharmacist with 3 daughters (17,12, and 16 months old). I mention the daughters because seeing them go through school has definitely educated me too. Just months after graduating university I created a publishing company called Puzzletainment Publishing to help students puzzle their way to better grades. I sell books for pharmacy students and other health care professionals on my website, but I wanted to create puzzles for younger students to enhance their learning too. I believe that the longer a student thinks about something, and puzzles over it, that it create stronger neuronal pathways and allows deeper understanding and long term memory.
I initially wanted to be a middle-school science teacher but I switched majors in university and became a pharmacist. Now I still teach people daily about the proper use of medication and safety. I am passionate about giving students fun ways to engage in their studies, and I believe puzzles like crosswords and word searches allow students to puzzle their way to better grades. I know it has helped me and my kids, and I'm sure it can help your students too. I want to be your destination for worksheets for early finishers. If you have any suggestions for topics or improvements please let me know. Thank you, Tim
