Mission Statement – What We Do
Our mission is to help teachers plan standards-based lessons in a format that will allow for teacher autonomy and will support teacher creativity. We want to enable teachers to be creative while still meeting school and district requirements. We want teachers to enjoy teaching again.
Teacher’s Planning Partner provides an efficient, effective and thorough guide to lesson planning and execution, while ensuring compliance and success with standards-based teaching practices.
