Veronica - I am a mother, casual and temporary Teacher in NSW Australia. For the past 2 years I have only worked as a casual teacher and that is becoming less and less as TeachEzy takes over my very limited time. I have taught children from Kindergarten to Year 6, with over 2 years in a multi-grade classroom of students from K-6. Jenny - I am a mother, creative artist and I have worked in early childhood. Both of us have had experience working with therapists and teachers for many years. Our sons are severely disabled and we first met at early intervention about 17 years ago when they were only 1 and 2. Both are big strapping boys now.
I love to see kids exploring and creating - learning through hands-on activities. This way they are more focused and have a positive school experience. I also love to encourage children to input their own ideas into the lessons...to grow by listening and collaborating with others in the classroom. Jenny is a caring soul with a wicked sense of humour. Her sense of style and artistic talent are outstanding. We are both growing and improving together, with the support of our wonderful partners. Our motto is to "ease the workload" of teachers and parents everywhere. We know from personal experience just how hard teaching can be. We want to help teachers by reducing their workload by providing engaging activities for the classroom as we all know kids learn best when they are interested and enjoy what they are doing.

Degree in Education (Primary), Certificate IV in Business.
We are both mothers. Our sons have severe disabilities and we find it difficult to work outside the home and care for our children. Our boys have grown up together and it was a "no brainer" for us mothers to work together and support each other in business. We LOVE what we do, particularly the creative side. Most of our latest resources use our own clipart. We run a website based in Australia as well as posting our resources up here individually. I commenced the website in late 2012 and Jenny came on board late 2013. Her input into the resources has taken the presentation to a new level and we improve with each resource. Unfortunately, Jenny is no longer working in the business due to the increased care needs of her son, but we continue to catch up weekly. She has been sorely missed.
