35318344If you are a teacher, sometimes you need a specialized worksheet, a differentiated activity or a game that isn’t commercially available. That is why a lot of teachers, probably even you reading this blog, create resources for your students yourself. And most of the time, these great resources are only used in your classroom and at best shared amongst your direct colleagues.

So what if the teachers community around the world could benefit from them too? And how great would it be to get paid beyond your regular salary for what you create? This is where teachers communities comes in, and one of the most popular marketplaces for these materials is Teachers pay Teachers (TpT).
