How did YOU start teaching?

For me, it began with rain pounding on the glass, leaking in through the louvres. The power went off, and the water supply, too. I gripped my husband’s arms, afraid of what would happen next, as the house shook.

We had landed in the Solomon Islands only a month earlier when my husband got posted there in a British Aid program. After that massive cyclone hit, he was busy, greeting aid flights, ferrying emergency supplies, etc. I got to work the only way I knew how.

I was invited to a local primary school and started teaching. I didn’t know a thing about teaching then, but it was working with the children that taught me how. 

A brief emergency teaching stint soon turned into seven years, in what became my dream career; But it had a shadow side – workload imbalance. Talking with other teachers, I soon realised it wasn’t just me; we all felt it.

We aim to help YOU get off that time treadmill, love to teach and live your life

You know when, most of your after-school hours are spent on school work. Or you try to relax watching TV and do your school work, but neither gets done. Or you’re missing family time, and you can’t switch off, even from thinking about school.

I decided I had to do something – so I created the Go HERO quest, to work only my contracted hours, and stop taking work home. Or if I do take work home, I set the timer for one hour and get it done.
