I LOVE this website! It has been a huge help to me throughout my college education in becoming a teacher. I am now student teaching and I love being able to find and print out lesson plans I can use or tweak to accommodate my coursework requirements. I intend to keep using Lesson Planet throughout my career as a teacher.
