Lesson Planet is absolutely amazing! I teach at a school in the Dominican Republic and rely heavily on the internet for resources. Now, I no longer have to sift through the huge amounts of irrelevant information generated by internet search engines - I love being able to find creative lessons and worksheets for my students in a matter of minutes!
