About Share My Lesson
Free lesson sharing, funded by the American Federation of Teachers.
Built by educators, for educators across the country, we bring together a community of teachers, paraprofessionals, school-related personnel, parents, educational partners, union members and non-union members to join in our effort to provide high-quality education to all students. Share My Lesson was created by the AFT and TES Global in 2012. From the beginning, Share My Lesson has been committed to providing our community of members high-quality and effective lesson plans—many of which are aligned to standards—and professional development resources. As of 2018, Share My Lesson has 1.2 million members and more than 400,000 Toddler–Grade 12 resources which have been downloaded more than 13 million times.

Our History: American Federation of Teachers
The American Federation of Teachers was formed by teachers 100+ years ago and is now a 1.7 million member union of professionals that champions fairness; democracy; economic opportunity; and high-quality public education, healthcare and public services for our students, their families and our communities. We are committed to furthering these principles through community engagement, organizing, collective bargaining, political activism and the work our members do. The AFT works tirelessly to press for the tools, time and trust educators need to build strong public schools for all children, boost teacher quality, create rigorous academic standards aligned with a strong and deep curriculum, invest in wraparound services that help overcome barriers to student success, and ensure educators have a voice in improving their schools.
Join educators, parents, students, civic leaders and community members to reclaim the promise of public education.
