The go-to platform for supporting teachers

Unlocking the Power
of the World's Educators

Teachers Pay Teachers is the go-to platform created by teachers, for teachers to access the community, content, and tools they need to teach at their best. Founded in 2006, TPT provides a marketplace for teachers to exchange instructional materials and access easy-to-use digital tools. Today, TPT empowers teachers with the world's largest catalog of over 5 million pieces of educator-created content. Our community of more than 7 million educators — including 85% of PreK-12 U.S. teachers — use TPT to save time, support students, and learn from each other.

Our Vision

Unlock the collective wisdom of teachers.

Transforming Education Classroom by Classroom

Teachers Pay Teachers is transforming education classroom by classroom by enabling teachers everywhere to share their expertise and resources. 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. This commitment to innovation is ever-present in our NYC headquarters, and shared by the educators and administrators who power TPT.

Our founding story

TPT was founded by Paul Edelman, a New York City public school teacher who saw incredible, untapped potential in the work that teachers create for every lesson, every day. Paul quickly realized that his students did the best when he incorporated ideas from other educators. This spark inspired him to create TPT, which has grown into an enormous and global staff room: a place where any educator can find essential resources, collaboration, and inspiration.
