About 'Teachers of India' Portal:
The Teachers of India Portal aims to create a vibrant community of teachers through the sharing of knowledge and experience on a common platform.

Our primary goal is to support school teachers of state-run schools, who teach in the regional languages. Therefore, we feel it is especially important to facilitate content generation and sharing in those languages. Currently we have content in four Indian languages and English. We soon hope to extend it to other Indian languages, with your continued participation. Our resources are open to all non-profit and educational efforts.
