About Us

At Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT), we’re unlocking the power of educator-created content. More than 2 out of 3 of U.S. teachers come to TpT every year to get teacher-tested, engaging, and rigorous materials. What began as a humble exchange for teachers looking to share lesson plans has since exploded into an education powerhouse where teachers have created more than 3 million resources for all aspects of PreK-12 education. More than five million educators worldwide (including teachers, administrators, and parents) have downloaded TpT resources more than a billion times. If you haven’t heard of TpT yet and want to learn more, just talk to a teacher about us. Or try this recent article in Forbes.

An Insider's view of Teachers Pay Teachers

What are some social events your company does?

Every month a different team in the office will host a Teacher's Lounge. These can be anything ranging from a pumpkin-carving contest, to Office Olympics, where teams of TpT-er's represented a variety of different countries to compete for Office Olympic gold.

What projects are you most excited about?

My team works on the cloud infrastructure that we run all of our applications on, and we’re excited about creating pre-production environments for every pull request a developer opens. Using Kubernetes, we'd create temporary environments that mimic production but are isolated for testing purposes. This empowers our team to build with confidence.

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of our company values is “We Learn and Grow Together”. The first few members of the Schools team started right around the same time, so we really had to embody that value! We were building a new set of features and got to make a lot of decisions. Looking back at the code we were writing when I started at TpT, we’ve definitely learned a lot.
