Today we are happy to announce that we’re joining the AmazonLocal team. Sadly, this means that we will be closing TeachStreet. When we opened our doors on April 21, 2008 we had grand aspirations, to create a place to help lifelong learners find great classes and teachers, empower teachers with robust tools to manage their teaching businesses, and enable schools to more effectively generate leads for their classes. Over the last few years we have succeeded in creating what we think is the world’s largest selection of classes and courses, and one of the richest marketing toolsets for teachers and schools, big and small.
To our valued teachers, thank you for your support and being elemental in making TeachStreet something we can all be proud of. To our investors, thank you. You put your faith in us. We wish we had accomplished more, but know that we sincerely gave it our best. And your investment helped us grow as people, and as a team. We’re forever grateful, and will strive to pay it forward. To our current and past employees, thank you. The last few years have been challenging, but so rewarding for having gotten to know, and grow with, one another. We hope you’ll all look back on your TeachStreet days with some fond memories (and that the beer will help erase the other recollections).
And so it goes.
