    Hi there,

    Great unit on LOTF. I especially think your unit test is pretty rigorous to use with my 7th graders. Any chance you can email me a copy of your answers to my work email address ( Thanks a bunch and God bless.

    I am certified to teach both English and Spanish. Initially I was teaching Spanish when suddenly one of the English teachers became ill. She has taken a leave and will not return to work. I found out on a Friday that I’d be the new English teacher beginning the next Monday. I now have 2 AP Lit courses, 3 freshmen courses, and 1 creative writing course. I say all of that to say, your website is a lifesaver. I am giving you FULL credit for your materials. But I will be using many of them. God Bless teachers who are willing to share! Hopefully I can return the favor one day.

    Warmest Regards,
    Ms. LaToi’ Ware

    Hi, I love your unit. Last week, I linked to several of your files and was able to use them as inspirations; today, I get error codes. I would love to keep you as a source. If you have a way to open your files again, I’d love it. You are so awesome and creative.

    Hi, I came across your unit on Lord of the Flies and would like to use the exam. I was wondering if I could have you email a copy of the answers.
