"These sub plans have been the BEST discovery I have made on TPT! Thank you for making these wonderful and all inclusive plans that are so easy to use, especially when you are sick and the last thing you want to do is write sub plans!"

"I have purchased several sets of emergency sub plans, and they just never fit my needs. These, however, are just what I've been looking for! Easy prep, easy for the sub to follow! I recommend this to anyone needing emergency plans."

"These are fantastic! I purchased, copied, and stored in a sub tub. I told a neighbor where the tub was and all she did was put my tub on my desk and the day ran SO SMOOTHLY!"
