Who We Are and What We Do Teachers Pay Teachers (or TpT, as we call it) 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 first and largest open marketplace where teachers share, sell, and buy original educational resources. That means immediate access to a world of expertise and more time to focus on students and teaching. Our 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. When he arrived at his Brooklyn middle school classroom after graduate school, he quickly realized that his students did the best when he incorporated ideas from other educators. At the time, he only had access to the teachers in his school. He created Teachers Pay Teachers to provide a solution. Now, TpT has become an enormous and global staff room: a place where any educator can find essential resources, collaboration, and inspiration. Responding to a Changing Classroom Today, the demands on teachers are as high as they’ve ever been. Many teach multiple subjects to a wide array of learners. Meanwhile, the standards — and even the educational environment — are changing rapidly. Our Teacher-Authors understand that change because most are active classroom teachers who live it every single day.
