Dear Teachers,

It's happened, and sooner than I thought. A full-time teacher is now earning more on TpT than she does as a teacher -- a more than doubling of her salary! Deanna Jump, an award-winning K-1 teacher from Georgia has earned over $27,000 just in the months of October, November and December on TeachersPayTeachers! (To be clear, I have Deanna's permission to publicize this to you and to the press.)

This is a truly extraordinary moment, I think, and the implications for the future are bright and numerous. If you didn't believe it before, you can't still deny that the financial incentive to create high quality materials for your own classroom and then share them with teachers all over the world on TpT is REAL. If this lights a fire in 10's of thousands of teachers across the country, it will ignite the profession and lead to a beautiful cycle of collaboration and imagination and an ever-increasing, ever-evolving catalog of the highest quality curriculum content available. Of course, you don't do it for the money, per se, but let's be real-- who doesn't want to double their salary for a job they already love and for work they already do, and have it benefit thousands of teachers and students around the country and the world??

Deanna, kudos to you, and thank you so much for the inspiration!

Teach and be well,

Grades 5-9

I have been teaching grades 7 and 8 Language Arts and Social Studies at De Anza Academy of Technology & the Arts in Ventura, California since 2001. I have also briefly taught high school ESL (grades 9–12), and I spent one month teaching English in Moscow, Russia. My ultimate goal is to make learning fun through cooperative group work, hands-on projects and creative writing.
