Teachers Pay Teachers is the worlds most popular online marketplace for educational resources. It was founded by Paul Edelman, a former New York City public school teacher back in 2006. Teachers from all over the world come together to share their original resources and compensate curriculum developers. All resources are made by teachers, for teachers, so the content is interesting, informative, and fun to teach and learn. There are over 5 million educators registered to the platform, teaching every grade from Pre K-12. Subjects include art, math, social studies, science, music, English language arts, and many other specialty subjects.
The platform features a full range of educational resources, including whole units, full-year curriculum, assessments, project-based learning, special education, videos, social and emotional learning, digital and more. Each buyer can access ratings and reviews of each resource before they buy it. As other teachers give reviews, you can always trust them to be genuine and reliable.
In 2019, Teachers Pay Teachers launched the TPT ClassFund, which is a fundraising solution to help teachers access more teacher-tested and teacher-created resources to use in their classrooms. Launching a ClassFund campaign makes it easy for educators to raise funds from their community with the money going directly towards new resources for their school.
