What Lindsay Merritt says about Awesome Stories:

As an elementary school teacher, I thought Awesome Stories would not be beneficial in my day to day teaching, I was wrong! Although the lessons through Awesome teacher are geared toward middle and high school students, it can easily be modified for those younger students. I am always recommending the resources Awesome Teacher provides, both to colleagues as well as those in my masters courses!
