I am an educator and a member for 9 years now. Curriki has been my go to for finding high quality resources for my colleagues and for my own teaching. The member community in Curriki is outstanding and I know I can find classroom-tested and successful original lesson plans/units in every content area and topic imaginable! My homeschool teaching friends love it, especially for Curriki's original curated collections, courses, and professional development. I've even spread the word to parents because there are a multitude of resources that they can use for themselves and with their children. Best of all, it is FREE and accessible to all regardless of location, experience, and background. It's such an amazing offering to improve education and collaboration worldwide!

Curriki has been a great resource for quality instructional materials for my staff. The vast amount of resources that cover K-12 and all content areas is incredible! Teachers have been able to find lesson plans, supplementary videos, graphic organizers, and more to support their instruction. They also have used it to share their own instructional materials with each other as part of their professional learning community.

Curriki and the team behind it are an inspiration to me - a brilliantly simple idea well executed through intelligence, grit, and good old-fashioned hard work. Theirs is a story of sticking with something they believed in, often in the face of great challenges, giving the gift of learning to children around the world through their free teaching and learning community. I've been so impressed with their model and approach and look forward to seeing what this dynamic team will do next.

As a parent who has stayed up late into the night thinking about ways to help my kids master multiplying fractions, express themselves clearly via writing, or conquer the calculus challenges they face, Curriki offers access to extensive resources in all of these areas. Thank you, Curriki!!

For so many reasons, teaching is extraordinarily complex and challenging. And opportunities for teachers to share with and learn from their colleagues are crucial to helping all children get an excellent education. When a teacher shares their best lessons, worksheets, activities, projects, curricula with the Curriki library, they are helping countless teachers help their students…year after year. I vote Curriki into the top 5 teaching and learning sites available today!

As a grandparent with 4 grandchildren ages, 13, 9 , 6 and 5, I love using Curriki! When we are together often after school, we talk about what they are learning, if they are having trouble in a subject or sometimes just about their homework. I look for resources on Curriki that we can do together. My grandkids like having something to work on that supplements what they are assigned and learning. Sometimes we even look together and they pick out a project. Thank you Curriki and keep adding high quality, fun resources for all ages!

As a teacher, I can attest that we all crave the tools and resources to help our students succeed. Very often, I that existing instructional websites are inadequate, too enormous or inaccurate. What I want is a one-stop shop for the resources I need, those that are teacher-tested and do not have hidden costs. Curriki addresses all of that with a system that categorizes teacher-created resources by grade level, subject and type of resource, such as video or lesson plan, and it is completely free of charge. It is so easy to find what I need – and fast!

Curriki has been a wonderful resource for my child's high school GT program. I passed it on as a resource and they have used Curriki OER in a number of ways, from encouraging kids involved in the maker movement and studying computer science, to teaching about the US Constitution and, most recently, 911. My teen has also used Curriki resources on her own to reinforce lessons she was having difficulty understanding in algebra.

Curriki is a fantastic organization that demonstrates passion for helping and providing education and resources to young people both in the US and abroad. It gives Teachers the opportunity to connect with colleagues for various reasons including curriculum development. Plus, it's free. What could be better!? I love it as a teacher and recommend it to parents too.

I have been involved in many non-profits over the years, but Curriki holds a special place for me. I have been "in" the Education Technology industry for 28 years, and being a founder of Curriki is definitely something I consider a career highlight.

The global impact is extraordinary. Curriki, one of the first Open Education Resource communities *ever*, has demonstrated the ability to grow and sustain itself thanks to a number of generous benefactors, as well as demonstrated demand/value reflected by the continued (and growing) number of educators using and contributing to the community today. The staff and Board is dedicated to making a positive impact and greatly appreciates the support Curriki receives from its community members, benefactors, and friends.

When we founded Curriki years ago, we were the first to provide a global site for educators, parents, and students to share, rate, and review teaching and learning materials. Since then, Curriki has been explored by over 13.7 million users from nearly every country on the planet. It is absolutely huge. Through the large network of educators who voluntarily share their lessons, videos, assessments, and more with the entire global education community, this non-profit is chipping away at the huge handicap many under-served schools face--lack of adequate funding to purchase textbooks or digital teaching and learning materials. As co-founder and board member, I have been incredibly impressed with how the organization has thoughtfully and strategically iterated its programs and evolved over the years."

Curriki got the best knowledgebase on their website. You can learn, explore and even teach something that you know with the world beyond your limits. They are amazing and their support is round the clock, I mean if I have an issue or if I am not able to find something they will be right there to help whenever needed. They are not just an organization but a team of educators, intellectuals and researchers. I just love coming back to their website again and again.
Thanks guys for putting up great work!

Curriki provides a platform for experienced teachers to create/share proven online resources in the math sector. These include videos, texts, and worksheets targeted for students as well as resources such as lesson plans to support the teacher, all of which are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. An invaluable and well constructed resource!

I went to Curriki to find math activities and a reading list for summer for my granddaughter who is starting kindergarten. While there are many on line learning apps, I wanted to also have some resources that we could do together as activities. I found many links to resources that were valuable and could not find any where else. I was able to download them and print them. I also found an excellent reading list. It made our summer time together more interactive, fun and educational!
