June 11, 2006 -- From Matthew, a teacher, who is affiliated with the site.

As a literacy coach, I have referred all my teachers to this site to find excellent ideas to use in their classroom. It is easily navigated and the ideas are from teachers teaching the curriculum not a publisher. It is also a place where teachers may share the lessons they have developed to use to support the OCR curriculum. This means the site continues to grow and change on a regular basis to support teachers.
