Lesson Planet has helped me dramatically, giving me instant access to so many lessons, worksheets and rich ideas. It has helped me to continue to deliver high interest instruction to students with cross categorical special needs in high school inclusive settings, which is no simple matter. Due to the ease, quickness and richness of the materials on this site, my life as a first year teacher has been made infinitely better to say the least.
