I love to teach 101 - Sylvia teaching

Love to teach but all the admin is consuming your time?

I help teachers reduce their non-contracted hours so they can keep doing what they love to do.


Do you get thoughts like these?

Flip the switch to stop thinking about school work

Imagine if . . .
you could flip a switch

I don’t know about you, but I used to think about school work 24/7. I would be devising some new way to arrange the classroom in my head instead of sleeping. Or worrying about little Johnny who’s struggling.

But You can't switch off and stop thinking

What’s worse is when you’re with your family you can’t switch off from thinking about school. It’s there in your head and you’re not really listening to what others are saying.

I love to teach and have quality family time
Plan in school hours for work-life balance

Imagine if . . .
you get all your planning done

You know when most of your after-school hours are spent on planning. To combat it, you try to relax watching Netflix but you’re not really because you’re planning, so neither gets done.

But You stay up all night trying to get stuff done

Or worse, you stay up all night trying to get stuff ready but you’re dead beat by the morning when you have to teach a classroom of eager students.

stop working late and live your life
love to teach and Don't take grading home

Imagine if . . .
you never took work home

You know how you seem to work on school work constantly but never seem to get everything done. I used to take a cartload of marking home every night and work long into the night, but it never finished. 

But you're drowning under piles of papers

Or worse, I’d wheel that cart load of books home and trundle all the way back with them the next morning with nothing done because I couldn’t face it.

control that pile of grading

Don't Worry

I'm here to rescue you!

I’m Sylvia Skinner. A registered classroom teacher and  coach. I’ve been training teachers since 2005. 

I’ve built a school from the ground up, trained teachers, led a school, all while teaching my own class of kiddos full-time. That’s when I had to learn to work smart. 

So, I decided to share what I’ve learned over the years  on the worldwide web and created ilovetoteach101.com in 2021.

I love to teach both students and teachers, and I want to help teachers like you continue doing what they love and not give up.
