What do we do?

At Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT), we’re unlocking the power of educator-created content. More than 3 out of 4 teachers in the U.S., Canada, and Australia come to TpT every year to get teacher-tested, engaging, and rigorous materials. What began as a humble exchange for teachers looking to share lesson plans has since exploded into a massive marketplace where teachers have created more than 4 million resources for all aspects of PreK-12 education. More than six million educators worldwide (including teachers, administrators, and parents) have downloaded TpT resources more than a billion times. That's why Fast Company named us one of the top 50 Most Innovative Companies in the world in 2019, and awarded us the #1 spot for the education sector.  If you haven’t heard of TpT yet and want to learn more, just ask a teacher. 

The digital team at TpT is focused on serving our community of authors and teachers in a world where device-based content is a critical part of the teaching and learning process in the classroom. We have already launched products that allow our users to publish and access digitally native content on the TpT marketplace. Moving forward, we will complement these integrations with new content types that enrich learning in the classroom for students. We are building a new way for students and teachers to engage with our existing library of over 4 million resources and creating new on-device formats to help teachers teach and assess. Additionally, we are building products that help teachers package, deliver and provide feedback on this content so they save time helping their students succeed.
