Giving a helping hand to make life a little easier.
Rachel has been in education since 1992. Her teaching career started in the UK along with the early days of the National Curriculum.
After many years teaching and leading in a successful Independent School, Rachel took a leap of faith with the support of her family and started teaching overseas. During this time, she was introduced to the IB/PYP framework. Initially, it was all a bit of a mystery and a change of mindset, however, after a period of adjustment Rachel really began to see the value in the approach and brilliance in the philosophy. Rachel enjoys supporting others and loves to offer her ‘little pearls of wisdom’. This website enables her to do just that in a more far reaching way.
She was fortunate to become a PYP coordinator. In her conversations with many teachers, and helping teachers transition from a more formal to an Inquiry approach she found she enjoyed supporting teachers with tips and ideas - and so the idea of RDJ resources was born.
This is simply Rachel, Darryl and James. Our little trio of a family whose aim it is to support one another through our life journey. This site is about sharing; it started with professional tips and branched out into mini lessons, support material and other offerings along the way.
Without my family, their support, faith and love, I would not have been able to have the many opportunities I have had. I am immensely grateful to them. My husband pushing me and challenging me to develop this site is something I wouldn’t have done alone.
Our philosophy is that value for money makes this site accessible to all and makes life a little easier for everyone, but also covers the costs of maintaining the site and generates income to support the making of more resources. Our focus is always to share and support. In our desire to do this, the site also donates some profit to a range of children’s charities.
Please join our extended RDJ family and humour me by making me feel useful to society!
