Dear Teachers,

There's nothing more impressive than watching a teacher in perfect control of her environment effectively teaching fully engaged students. You can almost feel the students growing in richness. It brings to mind the phrases 'in the zone' from sports, 'hitting on all cylinders' from car racing, and 'captured his audience' from stage performance.

Without a great song, though, even Whitney Houston will tend to lose her audience. And Dale Earnhardt Jr. is only as good as his car. Likewise, engaging teachers need a strong lesson plan to enable a good performance.

Alas, always remember that you can find and share strong lesson plans here at TeachersPayTeachers, all created from hard-earned experience.

Teach and be well,
