TeachersPayTeachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original downloadable educational materials, hard goods and used educational resources. Founded in 2006 by a teacher frustrated with the resources available to him, Teachers Pay Teachers is an open marketplace for buying and selling lessons and classroom tools. The site grew in fits and starts for years before finally hitting its groove in 2014, when it topped $100 million in lifetime sales and hired former Etsy COO Adam Freed as its new CEO.The main project idea: To make the expertise and wisdom of all the teachers in the world available to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Its largest open marketplace where teachers share, sell, and buy original educational resources. That means immediate access to a world of expertise and more time to focus on students and teaching.
