How It Started
My boyfriend, Rich woke
up one morning, in a panic, after having a nightmare. He dreamt that he had to teach
my class for the day and his lessons were not ready! He didn't know what to do,
and he did not have enough time - he had seen how many weekend hours I spent on
preparation! Needless to say his day was crazy and hectic. We chatted and laughed
about his dream and then realised that we could help other teachers who could do
with some lightening of the work load!
I am a pre-school teacher and I realised that the better you prepare for school, the better your week is. I also know that good prep takes a lot of time and is a fairly thankless part of the job!
So in January 2008 Dollyrocket began, a South African website, written by a teacher, for teachers that includes seven learning areas! At last everything you need in one place!
It's one of the happily ever after stories, as my boyfriend is now my husband and Dollyrocket is here! Hurrah!
I hope you fall in love with Dollyrocket, and that you get your prep done in a flash, so that you can tick it off your list of things to do, and relax and enjoy your weekend!
One teacher, one dream, one very big idea, and Dolly Rocket is born!
