Absolutely! We use it often and have found some great resources! They do have lots of free options as well!

Yes, great resource

Love TPT. That's my go-to for resources (I teach self-contained special ed). I always check for free items first and have found some great things there. But I've paid for some awesome curriculum resources, too.

Love this site!!!

TPT, speech is sweet and speaking of speech. I’m a speech path.

Yes!! Completely worth it

Absolutely! There are many amazing educators out there sharing their materials! TPT and Patreon are well worth the investment.

Yes-but I’ve had some stinkers. Look for teachers who have lots of resources-and who got your style.

Yes. This is a great place for some amazing resources. I really like their grammar units. There are some occasions that I have purchased something from this site that was just “meh.”

Yes! I bought a figurative language set for my ESL students about 5-6 years ago and it’s become a staple in my ESL teacher toolbox that I use regularly . Everything I’ve ever purchased from that site has been extremely useful and well worth the money. Plus, they have free downloads too!

I have found that most elementary level lessons were fine. I generally stay with resources that are common core related and will increase or reduce rigor individually. I have no reference for high school level.

I’ve bought several things. Sometimes it’s better not to reinvent the wheel. Sometimes I find stuff that I can’t use as is but I can adapt for my needs. The added bonus is it helps support other teachers.

I have bought entire curriculum for TPT. Life saver for a new teacher.

Bought some Google slide math lessons...saved my sanity 😁 I didn’t have to start from scratch and TPT has a TON of FREE lessons

Have any of you ladies started taking dance/ballet lessons or any other hobby later in life than most? I took dance lessons for about 6 years when I was younger and was on a few teams at various studios but I haven’t done it in over a decade. I’m 24 now and there’s a ballet studio that offers lessons for adults and I was considering starting again but for some reason I feel a little silly. Most dancers have consistent years under their belts & this would just be for fun but still.
