I love Pinterest. Really. Some evenings I get lost on it for hours. I am the target demographic.

Considering the highly visual nature of teaching and the classroom, it only makes sense that Pinterest is hugely popular among educators as an idea generator and shopping tool. In fact, one of TpT’s highest traffic drivers is—you guessed it, Pinterest!

Recently, Pinterest asked some of our stellar TpT Teacher-Authors to run their new teacher boards. Many of the official contributors are also TpT Teacher-Authors. These boards were released earlier this month and we want to give a shout out to the selected Teacher-Authors. We’re proud of all of our TpT Teacher-Authors and it’s always great to see TpT’ers acknowledged as the cutting-edge experts that you are. We hope you’ll be inspired by what you see and perhaps even find some fantastic new teaching ideas of your own.

TpT Teacher-Authors on Pinterest


Maria Manore - Pinterest

Pinning for Kindergarten is TpT’s very own Maria Manore. You’ll find a TON of great activities, teacher tips and projects. I had to start following her “Yummie!” board right away.


Mel D - Pinterest
First Grade

1st grade is led by our very own Melissa Alonzo-Dillard. You might know her as Mel D. Melissa’s got the holidays covered, and you thought hand-turkeys were only for Thanksgiving 😉 (Here’s a fab blog post by contributor and TpT Teacher-Author Susan Moran – TGIF and here’s an article about Mel from Today.com.)


3rd Grade Thoughts - Pinterest
Third Grade

Stephanie of 3rd Grade Thoughts is pinning for the 3rd grade boards. That’s not surprising, her TpT profile says it was her favorite grade as a student and her favorite grade as a teacher.


Charity Preston - Pinterest
Fourth Grade

Charity Preston has the 4th grade covered! Charity runs several educational websites all of which are focused on helping teachers. You want themes, Charity’s got themes!


Mandy Neal - Pinterest
Fifth Grade

Fifth grade is brought to you by Mandy Neal. I think Mandy must pin even in her sleep—there are some super boards with everything from math-measurement to figurative language.


Mr.Hughes - Pinterest
Sixth Grade

Our very MrHughes runs the 6th grade boards. I don’t know how you do it, Mr. Hughes (he’s a father of 6!), but you’ve carved out time to pin some pretty awesome resources.


Pinterest: Subject Matter Boards


Schoolgirl Style - Pinterest
Classroom Decor

What about decorating my classroom, you ask? No problem! TpT Teacher-Author Melanie Ralbusky of Schoolgirl Style is hosting the Classroom Decor boards. It’s eye-candy to the Nth degree.


Jen Jones - Hello Literacy - Pinterest

Jen Jones from Jen Jones-Hello Literacy is all about the (wait for it) Literacy boards. Jen is a K-12 Reading Specialist and Reading Teacher Trainer. If her boards don’t inspire literacy, I don’t know what will.


The Lesson Plan Diva - Pinterest

And it’s a proven fact that Jenya Shaw of The Lesson Plan Diva will be hosting the Science boards. Jenya’s Science/Social Studies board will knock your socks right off!

A round of applause for all of our represented TpT Teacher-Authors! We’re impressed and proud and you can bet we’re following these Teacher-Authors’ stores!

Here’s just another way that TpT’ers are changing the education landscape for the better.
