  1. I’m Texas teacher and your page is amazing. I’m going to implement it in part this year and in full next year!!! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Dane,

    My name is Andy and I’m an Algebra/French Teacher in Alaska. Your website and course structure is well-organized and most importantly ENGAGING. Would you mind if used some of the pieces in creating my own school webpages and specific pieces as templates?

    1. Hey Andy,

      Thank you for the kind words! I really appreciate it. You’re more than welcome to use anything on the site. I’m happy to share! My only ask is that everything remains free. Thanks for asking!

  3. Thank you for sharing all of your resources! Sometimes I feel like I’m searching all over the place for different resources, so I love that you have warm-ups and concepts all in one place. Keep up the awesome work!
