I first began creating grammar activity packets as a high schooler in order to make English grammar more interesting.
When I began teaching Spanish, I realized that most of my students didn't remember English grammar. My Spanish grammar explanations may as well have been in Dumi Bo'o (a real language!)
So I created first the written worksheets, then course packs, and finally created the free educational resource website that is www.drlemon.com today. It is a constant work in progress, and as I find great (and hopefully, free) stuff, I will keep posting it. I am currently working with Ohlone College developing online Spanish classes, so feel free to contact them for information!
Thank you for all of the wonderful emails you all have sent over the years. I appreciate your interesting questions and suggestions.
To answer a couple of questions that don't fall into categories to put in the Grammar Notes pages:
1. Are you really that fanatic about coffee?
2. Do you get paid to make this website?
Nope, I work on this website in my own spare time. I create a resource for teachers and students of the solid and relatable grammar information that I wish I could have found when I was studying languages.
I really thank those of you who took the time to send me emails & sent letters to my school to let me know how much you appreciate what I've created.
3. So I sent a Thank you donation to you but I haven't heard from you.
Hmmm, I am not sure where you sent it to but I am sure there is a happy Deborah Lemon out there somewhere. My address isn't listed on the website. And sending cashier's checks and postal orders to the various schools was very thoughtful, but I am not sure where they ended up.
Please DO NOT feel any obligation AT ALL to send donations, but if the spirit moves you, here is a safer way to do so:
I promise to keep updating (and I'm working on videos and new PPTX.)
4. Where do you get your ideas?
From my life. Seriously. And the Coffee.
I especially have to thank my students who continually inspire me.
5. Do you have books or materials for sale?
Not yet. One day! Working on it!
6. Can I use your materials in my classes?
Sure! Just be sure to cite me by including my name and website on them.
