Teachers Pay Teachers {for Tech Tuesday}


Teachers make the best sharers, which is probably why Teachers Pay Teachers (TPT) - an online marketplace for lessons plans, activities and other teachery things - is having such a huge success.  In fact, one of the teachers who uses TPT just surpassed earning a million dollars just through the items she's sold to other teachers on TPT.

Isn't that awesome?  A million on the side.  To read more about her success, click here.

Of course, not everything is for sale on TPT.  Almost 50,000 items are free!  Free.  FRee.  FREE!

Before you spend anytime developing your next lesson plan or activity, check out Teachers Pay Teachers and save yourself valuable time. Or add your own items and start earning extra income.

Yep, thank me later :)

PS - Special thanks to Skillshare for featuring Teachers Pay Teachers on their Facebook page this week and reignited my interest in them.

  1. I discovered TPT around July and have bought or grabbed the free versions of a few powerpoints, graphic organizers and lesson plans. I think its a wonderful idea..if I ever feel confident enough about a few things I create, I'm planning on adding my items as well.

  2. Hey Mrs jen I've already done three of the five on my professional points list, and thanks for showing me this website because it will help one day on the days that I don't want to create dance lesson. I would easily b able to buy one of these books and have a lesson for my dance class. So thanks:)

  4. I love Teachers Pay Teachers, what a better way to share your ideas, hardwork and get a stipend for doing so. When I was making copies for my daughter's teacher last week, I noticed the teacher was using material she found on TPT. She also mentioned that she will be listing her ideas on the site also. As a future teacher I will be visiting this site often.

  7. I love tech Tuesdays' because in this world of technology we are getting access to wonderful websites. Teachers pay teachers is one of them. I really admire you Prof. Jen for giving us so much information by sharing TPT. I was doing my long term sub job in high school and spent so much time making lesson plans for my students but definitely this site has so many ideas and materials which would be so helpful to me in my teaching career.

  8. I think this a good idea because teachers don't get paid enough as it is so for them to be able to make extra money by selling their ideas to other teachers is awesome. Also it helps new teachers come up with ideas that they could use in their own classroom is great.
