We offer more than 3 million free and paid resources, created by educators who understand what works in the classroom. Our marketplace is growing every day to meet the evolving needs of the PreK-12 classroom. When educators get the resources and support they need, they're best equipped to inspire our next generation of learners.

Our Vision

To make the expertise and wisdom of all the teachers in the world available to anyone, anywhere, at any time.

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.
