I Love To Teach 101

Why teachers should visit I Love to Teach 101

However, one thing is clear: without a thriving classroom environment, it’s nearly impossible for effective learning to take place. Fortunately, I Love to Teach 101 is the perfect hub for you to understand how to create such an environment.

Sylvia Skinner is an experienced teacher who has taken a unique, fascinating journey in her career. Along the way, she picked up useful nuggets of information on how to work smart, and is now ready to pass on this knowledge.

What can I Love to Teach 101 offer you?

With an informative blog page, handy resources and courses, valuable lessons straight from a seasoned veteran, and the opportunity to receive a free ebook about classroom organisation, I Love to Teach 101 is a hub for educators that truly stands out. It’s a place where Sylvia Skinner, classroom teacher and former principal, imparts knowledge from her 25+ years of experience in a range of different learning environments.

What’s more is that you’ll have access to Sylvia’s signature course ‘Go HERO’, where you can learn to flip the switch and stop the overwhelming thoughts that school life can place on teachers. This aims to offer you professional development (PD) that will take the burden from your shoulders, meaning that you’ll spend less time thinking about menial tasks which could be streamlined and approached more efficiently.

Dedicating your energy toward school is important, but having balance outside of your contracted hours is even more so. After all, an overworked, overburdened teacher won’t be able to show the best version of themselves!

After earning her education degree with honours in ESL, Sylvia led a school for five years while simultaneously teaching her foundation class. With a passion for teaching, but encroaching administrative responsibilities that seemed to eat up weekends, holidays, and free time, Sylvia was determined to figure out the best way to create a calm, inviting environment for herself and her students.

An organised space makes a world of difference and finding different techniques that save time, while also not detracting from the teaching’s impact, was imperative. I Love to Teach 101 shares these techniques, stored up after years of experience!

About the creator

So, who is the architect behind this website? Sylvia Skinner has been a primary school teacher in both Australia and Solomon islands. She understands the pressures that come with teaching, particularly how demanding and overwhelming the workload can mount up to be. Long nights, jam-packed weekends, wasted holidays – these are all things that Sylvia experienced but managed to overcome.

She created I Love to Teach 101 to assist teachers, sharing pearls of wisdom that could help teachers establish and maintain organised classrooms. After all, classroom organisation leads to classroom management, and a vibrant environment means engaged students who are fully invested in their learning. Over the years, Sylvia has created enjoyable classrooms for her students, all built upon the basis of organisation.

Experiencing education overseas

As part of the British Aid Programme, Sylvia ventured overseas in 1986, touching down in the Solomon Islands. Here, she stayed for fifteen years. A month into her arrival, Cyclone Namu hit. Sylvia was keen to help in any way she could, and she ended up teaching a Foundation class of 72 kids!

After recognising that many teachers worked for very little – or nothing at all – Sylvia decided something had to be done.

So, she helped build a school. Sylvia was then asked to become principal, train teachers how to set up, decorate, organise, plan, and teach – all while teaching a full class of kids full time!

Ultimately, this is when she needed to figure out how to work in the smartest way possible. Partly due to her hard work, commitment, and organisational skills, the school experienced great success, with its Year 6 students graduating in the top 10%, allowing them spots in the few High Schools available.

On the back of this success, Sylvia is now keen to share what she learned, looking to equip teachers with the necessary tools to be outstanding educators.
