I love to teach Upper Primary students! I love their energy, humour and even their sassy attitude! I love being able to teach topics that generate discussion and I’m always amazed at the maturity and insight upper primary students have. Keeping up with older students and their teaching needs can be very time consuming and as teachers we place a lot of pressure on ourselves to ensure our lessons are interesting and fun, while still curriculum centred. This takes dedication and enormous amounts of time – usually outside of the classroom. My goal is to ensure that you have a one stop shop for fun, engaging and thorough teaching resources that complement your teaching AND make teaching those not so exciting topics interesting and enjoyable. My other goal is to make your life easier so you can spend time doing the things you love rather than worrying about creating or finding teaching resources. I know what it’s like to spend your evenings creating activities and resources, or brainstorming ways to teach a concept when you should really be spending time taking care of your family and yourself. I know what it’s like to worry about not getting it all done and trying to find something that will help to ease the load. I’ve been there! Teaching is an incredibly demanding profession and the demands seem to be growing, so if Aussie Star Resources can make life easier for Aussie teachers then I’ve achieved one of my major goals as a resource developer.
I’m so glad you’ve found Aussie Star Resources and hope that you find helpful tools that make your teaching fun and engaging but also ease your workload and help you find time for YOU!
