What do we do?

Teachers Pay Teachers is a community of millions of educators who come together to share their work, their insights, and their inspiration with one another. We are the world’s first and largest open marketplace where educators share, sell, and buy original educational resources.

The New York Times called the phenomenon we lead “A Sharing Economy Where Teachers Win”.
