Mark Z.
Lesson Planet has allowed me to better serve my students by exposing me to a wide variety of techniques to teach various algebraic concepts. In a short time I am able to benefit from others' wide range of experiences in the classroom while having the latitude to alter or change what does not fit my teaching style or the learning styles of my students.
