Meet The Team Behind Your Teacher's Pet Creature

We really wanted to find a way to connect with anyone and everyone who is on this journey to launch Your Teacher’s Pet Creature so we have decided that we will launch short series of blogs over the next few weeks so you can get to know us, and all the work we are doing to develop Your Teacher's Pet Creature. 

So here we are, a writer, a teacher and a teeny tiny product tester. That’s us, the small family team behind creating Your Teacher’s Pet Creature.

I guess I’ll introduce myself first. I’m Jonathon and given that I’m writing this blog series you’ve probably guessed that I’m the writer. I fell in love with reading as a child, I still remember in year four when I read so many books, they had to create a whole new certificate just for me. I grew up passionate about writing and went on to study Creative Writing at Curtin University of Technology in Perth.

Maria, however, is the true brains behind Your Teacher’s Pet Creature. She got her Bachelor of Education specialising in Early Childhood Studies from Edith Cowan University. She’s a passionate teacher and an amazing mother. She’s spent the last 7 years teaching Early Childhood in both schools and early learning centres. It’s her training and practice that has allowed us to refine this project into what we hope will be a much-loved finished product.

Finally, we have Nico, he’s coming up on two years old faster than I ever could have imagined. His job is to cuddle the plush toys and let us know which ones he likes best. It might sound like a small job, but he loves every minute of it.

We’d love to know who you are too, feel free to introduce yourself in the comments and let us know you’ve dropped by. If you want to make sure you don’t miss out on our upcoming blog posts make sure you follow us over on Facebook or Instagram.
