Physical educational teacher by day…Physical education Entrepreneur by night!Ben created The PE Specialist blog after being a teacher for 6 years. In the first 6 years, he realized he didn’t have all the resources he needed and not a lot were readily available. He gathered his ideas and resources and started sharing them on social media. People wanted more, so he started the blog. It ended up acting as more of a diary for him, since every year he could go back and read it, and he will have the year already planned out for him. Ben learned how to create a website by signing up to a course, asking other fellow teachers, and doing a lot of Googling/YouTubing.
