Solutions for the Secondary ELA Teacher
Say goodbye to your Sunday scaries with free resources, lesson plan ideas, and other useful tools from Mondays Made Easy.
I’m so happy to meet you.
My name is Daina, and I support secondary teachers in developing life-long readers and writers. In recognizing the challenges of navigating and succeeding in the 21st Century, I also provide resources for educators to equip students with appropriate skills for our modern world.
