Other English teachers, do you agree? Other suggestions?
I'm kind of a parallelism freak, so while I won't say things are ungrammatical, I think they will read with a great deal more style if they are balanced.
(As it says below, I'm not an English teacher, but how things read is pretty important to my success at my job.)
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
