Will Guy, founder of Role to Play Games, has worked as a teacher and coach his whole professional life and has been immersed in role-playing games ever since he was a child. Not only does he have experience in the classroom, but he has also worked as a professional game master for participants ranging in age from 6-60.

55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
While I will keep the content age suitable, please keep in mind that there will be monsters, battle, and otherworldly magic. In the game, characters can die (but this will not be directly depicted).

We'll be using official D&D content and the Fifth Edition (5E) ruleset.
