About Teach This

wHO WE ARE? What We do? Why we Do it?

Our Origin Story

people

Teach This began in 2007 with the website going live in October of that year. Within a year the catalogue of products had increased to several hundred.

Trish, a teacher with degrees in both Commerce and Primary Education, enjoys developing curriculum based resources to support and inspire learners. Although Trish has worked in mainstream classrooms, she has most recently worked with students who have various learning difficulties. She is passionate about creating resources that allow and encourage all students to participate in learning activities.

John, a computer systems administrator, maintains TeachThis.com.au and provides all customer support. John enjoys helping Teach This members access all the material they need and is available for telephone support 24/7.

Together, John and Trish are the proud parents of four girls - 9 year old triplets and a 15 year old daughter with autism. The considerable growth experience gained working and living with autism has inspired much of the Teach This material. This continues to be a rewarding experience and has led to the creation of many more visual resources.

We hope you continue to enjoy the Teach This website and find great benefit in your classroom.

Our Core Beliefs

Love of Learning

Learning is a lifelong endeavour, and it is crucial that we instil a love of learning in students at a young age. We’re all about bringing curriculum content to life, bringing smiles to students’ faces as they learn, and showing them that learning really can be fun.

Work is Fun

As a teacher, much of the enjoyment of the job can seem to be drained away with planning, assessment and paperwork. We work hard to find ways to reduce your time spent planning and assessing student work, so you can get back to your passion: teaching.

Passion

We are obsessed with creating educational content that brings classrooms to life, encourages social interaction and puts smiles on students’ faces. Along with a vivid social environment through which to learn, this is what we believe school is all about.

Quality

We constantly work with the Australian Curriculum to ensure all new content is perfectly linked to the required learning outcomes. As we believe students deserve the most effective resources and engaging classroom experiences, we deliver the highest quality games and resources.

Purposeful Creation

We foster a passion for creativity, where we toss ideas about, weighing up the effectiveness of any material before it ever reaches classrooms. The challenge, however, is not to create simply for the sake of creating and bombarding busy teachers with unnecessary content. There must always be a clear and necessary purpose.

Simplify

We’ve learnt to break concepts down to their simplest form, allowing all students to participate successfully in lessons whilst building self-confidence. We embrace the opportunity to support students with special needs through the principle of simplicity. Our goal is always to find ways to make concepts, processes and procedures simpler for both student and facilitator.

Inspire

We don’t aim to give your students all the answers. We aim to inspire them to want to know more about those topics that spark an interest, and to know how to keep moving forward with their quest to learn more.
