: “Rich Teachers
) has definitely struck a chord! It continues to elicit strong feedback. Loyal reader Denise
I love that Erin voiced that she hates Teachers Pay Teachers
for the SAME EXACT REASON I do!! I refuse to get on that website. Teachers, REGULAR TEACHERS should not ever HAVE to pay to get good content. I’m a fan of stealing. It’s no secret. I tell all teachers that the best teacher move is to steal steal, STEAL. Steal everything and anything. Get it off of Pinterest. Google it. Ask other teachers that teach the same content you do. However, the people with the money should ALWAYS pay the teachers.
Loyal reader Katherine offers an astute opposing view:
I LOVE Teachers Pay Teachers and follow a handful of my favorite “Teacher-authors” on Instagram. Two thoughts I have about this are: I love TpT because I’ll trust a teacher over a textbook company any day, and most teachers probably make a small sum from this work, and that probably makes all the difference for them in places where pay is atrocious. While that’s cool, what does it say about the value of our work? The age-old question.
