Why do we celebrate TpT milestone success stories? Well, there are three main reasons:
- We always love to give our TpT Teacher-Authors a moment to shine.
- We think this is a great way to bring sellers to your attention who might be a perfect fit for you to follow.
- These milestone success stories inspire us. We hope they inspire you, too. If you’re thinking about becoming a seller or you’re getting established, here’s proof that it can happen. It isn’t overnight and there’s a whole lot of hard work involved in getting there, but these 10 sellers who achieved milestone success are educators just like you.
