"After seven years in the profession, I wanted to quit."

That’s how Katherine Cozens, an English teacher in Melbourne, Australia felt before she discovered Kaizena. Her frustrations are shared by educators everywhere: dozens of drafts to review for every assignment, 100+ students, even wrist pain. Kath, however, found Kaizena: “I’d say it’s reduced my marking time by 40%. This has made a huge difference to my general sense of satisfaction at work: I feel less burdened by the marking load, I’m putting more time into planning, and I have decided to stay on the profession for at least another year."
