Dear Teachers,

We don’t like to show off too much, but we can’t help bragging about our latest milestone — as of this month, teachers have sold over $1,000,000 worth of original teaching materials on TeachersPayTeachers.com! With the average price of a product on TpT at around $3, that’s a lot of resource-sharing, which benefits everybody.

We’re proud. And we're proud that our sellers offer so many high quality free materials, too, 6,450+ and growing daily.

If you would like to participate in the next million or two or three in teacher earnings, login and upgrade to a seller account which you can do for free or for $59.95, depending on which seller membership terms are best for you, Basic or Premium. The latter earn 85% of their sales. That could mean a lot of supplemental income for you and your family, and great satisfaction from having a wider educational impact on the world. Start with one or two listings and add as you go. We'll be here throughout your whole career!

Teach and be well,


......to keep track of site news and get free downloads delivered to your FB Wall. Come on already, everyone's doing it!

aka PowerPoint Guru

English Language Arts
Grades 6–12

Alex was our highest earning seller this past quarter so we asked him about his approach to content creation. Alex said, "Teaching content to kids in a way that they find entertaining, engaging and meaningful gives me fulfillment in the classroom. When you are able to get to a kid who has mentally shut down and turn that kid around, it is a tremendous feeling for an educator."

Here are four great products by PowerPoint Guru:

  Thesis PowerPoint
  Animal Farm PowerPoint
  Mythology PowerPoint
  Metaphor PowerPoint
• You can now print itemized receipts of your purchases from your My Downloads page. Save them so you can deduct your purchases from your taxes. Talk to your tax accountant about it.

• To find out when your favorite TpT Sellers post new materials, click to “follow” them from your My Downloads page or from their profile pages. You’ll get email notifications of high quality useful resources for your classroom as they are hot off the presses.
