I rely heavily on Lesson Planet for finding the resources I use to teach my two daughters at home. Although I am not qualified to teach, I am confident they are both progressing and enjoying the lessons. Being a mother and a teacher at the same time is the best job I have had. Thank you Lesson Planet!!
