#100Daysofgoodstuff Day 86: Good Teamwork

Education is a team sport. I learned about Teachers Pay Teachers from an educator friend.

Crowdsourcing the best of the best in lesson plans seems like a brilliant, much-needed resource for teachers, and ultimately students all over the globe.

“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.”

I’m thrilled that this marketplace exists, because our children’s futures depend on having the best possible education.
