Share My Lesson & TES Connect Register 200,000 U.S. Teacher Members In Record Time

WASHINGTON, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Launched in 2012 in time for back to school in September, the free resource-sharing website for teachers, Share My Lesson, and TES Connect have recorded phenomenal success, with more than 200,000 U.S. teacher members registered in just five months. Created by teachers, for teachers and backed by the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and TSL Education, Share My Lesson is on track to have more than one million U.S. teachers by the end of this year.

The success of Share My lesson has mirrored the success of TSL Education's global platform TES Connect, which has established itself as the world's largest platform for teachers, with 2.4 million registered teacher members and connecting more than 46 million teachers and students in 197 countries across the globe.

The rapid growth and adoption of Share My Lesson has been so successful that Share My Lesson has hired Scott Noon, an education technology veteran, to lead the team at their brand new office in Washington, D.C. Noon joins Share My Lesson from Teachscape, where he led the company's state and federal strategy and policy agenda to develop partnerships for effective teaching, instructional leadership and human capital management systems. Prior to Teachscape, Noon was also a co-founder of Classroom Connect Inc., the first dotcom-era business aimed at helping teachers to use the Internet in the classroom.

Commenting on the success and rapid growth of Share My Lesson, TSL CEO Louise Rogers said, "We know our approach to resource sharing through TES Connect is hugely popular with teachers around the world, but we couldn't have imagined how quickly Share My Lesson would catch fire here in the U.S. We are delighted by its rapid growth and adoption by teachers in the classroom, especially around the Common Core subjects, which have proved to be the most popular resources on the site so far. Watching more than 1,000 teachers join every day is a huge endorsement of Share My Lesson."

President of the AFT Randi Weingarten said, "I'm thrilled that Share My Lesson has already established itself as one of the leading resource sites for teachers in the U.S. in such a short time. Everywhere I go throughout America, teachers are talking about Share My Lesson and how it is helping them in their classrooms. That's exactly what we hoped when we created Share My Lesson. I'm also delighted that Scott Noon has joined us. Scott is a respected and experienced leader, and I wish him great success in his new role."
