Sharon Wood, aka NuttySupplier, is a former primary teacher. After many years at the chalk face as a full-time teacher, a change of location led to a change of heart, and she decided to become a career supply teacher. Sharon launched SupplyBag.co.uk in 2005, TheSupplyTeacher.com in 2013, and created National Supply Teacher Week, held in the 3rd week of June each year. Sharon would dearly have loved to return to supply teaching following the birth of her son, but is unfortunately unable to due to health problems.
