If you aren’t on Teachers Pay Teachers (TPT) yet, now is the time to sign up. Creating a lesson plan for use in your own classroom is a sunk cost. Wouldn’t it be nice to reclaim or offset these high, fixed costs? TPT enables you do this through the sale of your lesson plans to other teachers. The buyers win by saving time and getting access to the best lesson plans, while you, the seller, are compensated for the long hours that you devote to lesson plan development. This is a mutually beneficial collaboration. Check out other teacher websites too.
As you build up your TPT store, you can do many things to help set it apart. Study the most successful stores on TPT, and see what works for them. You can conduct joint ventures with other teachers, whereby you promote each other’s stores or products.

Still not encouarged? Be sure to read about and watch this video about Deanna Jump, the Georgia teacher who became a millionaire by using TeachersPayTeachers.
A clip from the Huffington Post:
Deanna Jump, a 43-year-old kindergarten teacher in Georgia, has unexpectedly become a self-made millionaire — by selling her lesson plans to other teachers.[irp posts=”3375″ name=”Different Ways Teachers Can Make Extra Money”]
Like most teachers, Jump never really expected to rake in the cash, and she and her husband struggled to pay the bills while supporting their three children. But three years ago, a colleague who thought Jump’s lesson plans were extremely effective encouraged Jump to share her lesson plans on TeachersPayTeachers.com.
The site was created by Paul Edelman in 2006. The former teacher, recognizing teachers’ unforgiving hours and limited resources, wanted to offer educators a way to help each other — and make money while sharing their ideas. TPT now allows educators to post original materials, allowing others to download the content for an average $4 per lesson, though prices vary “depending on the breadth and depth of the resource,” and teacher-sellers determine their own pricing, Edelman told The Huffington Post.
