Teachers have the hardest jobs on the planet–with marking and planning being the top two areas that lead to unnecessary workload. They have to responsibly educate every student that comes their way -the good, the bad and the inbetweeners. Alongside teaching, they also have to monitor & assess their students which is time-consuming, repetitive and often enough, frustrating. Well, they can finally heave a sigh of relief. Why you wonder?

And most importantly, it helps make their jobs a whole lot easier.
