Managing the requirements of the Australian Curriculum can be a challenge even for the most organised teacher. As the school gates open and students flood in, there’s an expectation that teachers should be bursting with enthusiasm, eager to get into the classroom and teach tomorrow’s generation of engineers, entrepreneurs and doctors.
But the reality is that teachers often have mixed feelings at the beginning of each school day. Some describe dread and anxiety while others say they’re hopeful or ‘trying to remain positive’.
Does any of this ring true for you?
What if I told you I could take some of your anxiety away? What if I could help you stay in the job you actually love but are finding too overwhelming because the Australian Curriculum is distracting you from actually teaching and helping your students?
My name is Melissa Bagnall and I am passionate about helping Australian teachers be the best they can be by easing their planning workload! After spending more than 10 years teaching primary school children, I started this business to help relieve the pressure of planning from Australia’s amazing teachers allowing them to give their attention back to their students’ needs.
As a teacher myself I know first hand the difficulties of delivering fun and exciting lessons while juggling the pressures of overcrowded curriculum expectations. I also know the pressures of balancing home and work-life – it’s not easy people!! See below the other people in my life I manage ;p
Here at Ridgy Didge Resources we aim to take the pressure off you as a teacher, providing you with ready-made resources, aligned with curriculum standards, that are quick to download and ready for you to print for that lesson that starts in 5 minutes! Our resource collection contains a wide selection of activities, posters, classroom decor accessories and unit plans, that are bound to compliment the great teaching that is already happening in your classroom.
