Hello and welcome!
I have big dreams for this site and it will take plenty of time to achieve them but even the longest journey starts with a single step and this is it; Blog Post #1!
While you can find all this information elsewhere on my site, let me start with the basics.
My name is Bianca. I am a qualified teacher, though currently a stay-at-home-mum. I taught in a Primary School eight years. While working in the classroom I was also my school’s Numeracy co-ordinator for a number of years. As I progressed through my teaching career I realised one of the main challenges faced by teachers is a lack of time. I recently realised there was a way I can give teachers back some time, lift their work load and take away the tasks they didn’t particularly enjoy but still have to complete.
Flying Sprout is dedicated to Saving Teachers Time; less time spent on undesirable, energy-sapping tasks means more time to do the things you want to do and more time to focus on the needs of your students.
Flying Sprout gives teachers the opportunity to outsource many non-teaching duties. These tasks include but are not limited to:
- Proof reading and editing
- Printing and laminating
- Cutting and sorting
- Reading and summarising
- Sourcing Resources
Also offered by Flying Sprout is pre-service and graduate teacher mentoring. Sometimes it can be hard to talk through issues with colleagues, gain advice and support in a new workplace. Having a mentor who has worked in the same environment, understands the pressures and is willing to listen and offer advise without judgement can be a very valuable thing.
I hope you enjoy taking this ride with me as I aim to grow a business from my passion.
