"Fantastic I thought - get the recognition for all my hard work and paid as well (and much better royalties than other publishers)!"

Sue trained as a business teacher for secondary schools but decided to get a job in further education teaching 'proper' business subjects at a variety of levels (from introductory level to management qualifications). A job of Head of Business then came up in a secondary school which was establishing a sixth form. "It was a great opportunity - to set up a brand new department and brand new courses", such as BTEC Business, ICT, Science, and Health and Social Care.

Sue became an external verifier, where she verified school courses and delivered staff training before later gaining her NPQH (qualification for Headteachers). However, preferring life in front of the class, she remained a teacher.

"When I thought about other schools and colleges using my materials I was really chuffed! When I got my first royalty cheque I was even more chuffed!"

Sue enjoys a challenge.

"Getting my work published was a real ambition. Like many teachers, I had spent many countless evenings and weekends constantly trying to improve the materials I use in the classroom. I thought they were good - but no-one ever told me so." Who would? Students would never dream of saying "that was a brilliant PowerPoint or handout miss".

Sue then saw the advertisement for PublishMeNow where she could get the recognition for all her hard work and paid as well!

"It is great because I can develop materials on topics I choose and in ways that I enjoy. I get help and support along the way at times to suit me - generally via email which is good because I can open them when I like. I get the occasional phone call of support too, sometimes to clarify matters - so there is the human touch as well. I deal with specific named people who edit my work, etc. and they make me feel like a member of the team."
