WHO ARE THE INSTRUCTORS?

Adam Wallace is a New York Times, USA Today and Amazon bestselling author based in Melbourne, Australia. Like Jarryd, Adam comes from a long line of teachers. He also comes from a long line of dancers, actors, musicians and writers … so after school he became an engineer! Logical, right?

Adam is also a qualified primary school teacher (yep, he couldn’t stay out of the family business!), but what brings him the most joy is entertaining and inspiring kids, showing them that they can achieve so much more than they believe.

Adam has sold over 3,000,000 books, including copies to three Kardashian sisters and DJ Khaled. With over 85 books published and over 500 schools, libraries and festivals visited, Adam’s journey to entertain and inspire millions of kids is well on its way.

Jarryd Bendall comes from a long line of teachers, which is why he initially avoided this calling. After a myriad of roles in law, medicine, used car sales, and as the mascot for the Western Bulldogs AFL team, Jarryd eventually taught primary school for a number of years, before combining his love for writing and education at an Education Specialist role with Cool. This role sees him as a bridge between knowledgeable industry experts and classroom teachers, bringing excellence into the classroom and challenging the average curriculum with innovative and effective ideas.
