TES Australia founder members

Meet the teachers who helped build TES Australia

Thank you to our founder members who contributed their wonderful teaching resources ahead of the site's launch. Their generosity and hard work means that fellow teachers can access and benefit from a wealth of teaching material tailored specifically to the Australian curriculum.

Ellen Barr:
"TES Australia could not come at a more appropriate time than now with the introduction of the new Australia Curriculum."

Jan Polkinghorne:
"As a Jolly Phonics trainer with regular contact with many teachers Australia wide, I have been using and recommending TES to teachers for years. To be able to say that we now have our own TES Australia will make it just that much more relevant and useful… I trust teachers of Australia will give TES the support this initiative deserves."

Stuart Byrnes:
"I encourage you to support the new TES Australia site as the resources available here will be specific to Australian Curriculum requirements. The resources will also be a valuable asset to supporting the stage development of your particular class, within varying subject areas."

Leanne Grams:
"TES has proven an invaluable source for my teaching and I use it as a first port of call when preparing a new topic. I recommend it very highly and am so excited that we now have an Australian TES."

Scot MacCrum:
"I am thrilled to see that TES Australia is now available for Australian teachers and students to enjoy. This website will assist myself (and many other Australian teachers) in implementing the Australian Curriculum for many years to come. Thank you TES Connect!"

Penelope Earp:
"Working within special education it is very difficult to find appropriate and relevant resources, and the wonderful thing about TES Australia is that there are loads of amazing resources for our students."

Arvind Singh:
"TES Australia is a user-friendly site for teachers with lots of useful resources. It is a great site as it allows teachers to share and collaborate with other colleagues."
