Here's what one of our members wrote to us in early 2011:
I loved the samples, but suspected those lesson plans "behind the curtain" would not be the same quality. They absolutely were as good as the samples and I'm delighted at finding that. I'm going to sign up for the Lifetime Membership tomorrow. Many thanks.
