TES online- With over 1.6 million members spread across 196 countries, they are one of the largest networks of teachers in the world. Although decidely UK and European in focus, the wonderful resources make it a great site for teachers around the world and especially for those in the US that have not heard of it.

A staggering half a billion hours of prep time has already been taken out of the system.There are now over 150,000 teaching resources on TES that have been created and shared by teachers like you from all over the world. And thousands of these resources can be used in classrooms in the USA and Canada.
