LessonPlanNOW was conceived by a teacher in a moderately low-income school district. She thrives on her students coming into her classroom, ready to have a good time, and learning the nuances of the language. As an avid fan of all things sports, she relates to many of her students through discussions about last night's "game" and past experiences as a collegiate athlete at the University of Connecticut and University of Minnesota. She lives to understand and empathize with all of her students, although she admits that it is sometimes nearly impossible to do, "I can't believe how strong and resilient my students are. I'm not sure I could walk a day in their shoes." She believes that all people can learn about literature, "Sometimes it's a matter of striking the right chord."
