Whose start date is earliest? I’m pretty sure we have some 2005 but I don’t know if there are current posters who joined earlier than that.

April of 2008. (The date you joined shows up just below your avatar if you're on a computer.) PT was way different then - much more sharing of ideas and materials. Definitely pre TPT!

2007, though I started reading here in 2006. I think there are a couple of posters who actually came here in 1999 but have since changed user names.

I've been here since 2006. I took breaks of several years, off and on. I would come back to read posts now and then, but I came back on a more regular basis and started posting again when Covid was starting up.

2001--and i think that was even before "joining" was a possibility....

"threads" looked much different--they were bulleted so you could respond to different people directly

Tia!! I was hoping someone prior to 2005 would show up. You beat that by a few years! In fact, look—you’re just days (okay, just over two weeks) away from your 20th anniversary here!

I think I found PT in 2005, but I didn’t officially join for a long time.

So many people and so many years! It’s hard to believe.

I joined in as soon as I had a decent internet connection in 1999. I've had a number of usernames since then. I still remember Gina (from Texas maybe?), and Elaine from Kentucky, Cathy-Dee, Sharon from Canada, who married and added her husband's name to her username, Susan, Amanda and many others...
I read the posts everyday but don't post much as you can see��

Great question. Fun reading the replies.

Iíve only been here since 2014 (probably seems longer to old-timers because I talk too much). I began for the teaching advice and now Iím here for my social life; now that I live alone, you have no idea how much I appreciate you all (even the ones who hate me). I look forward to PT every dayósincere thanks!

Dec 2005 for me. I do remember finding this site my first year teaching though, I had a really different boy and was looking for ways to help him. That would have been on 2000 I believe. I dont remember the message boards then though. I think they were added later. I agree, it used to be very different. I was always using things people had shared. Now, it is nice to read about everyone else's schools though. Sometimes, it makes my problems seem much smaller. I dont post often but I read here almost everyday.

I joined in April 2008, but had been lurking before that.
I found PT in 2005 while searching for resources for an African-American History class that I was taking. We were writing a unit to be used with second graders.

Great find, dutchgirl! I miss Phil. Used to chat with him all the time (miss some of my other fellow chatters- especially because chat no longer works at all due to running on flash )

I found this and read regularly, posted sometimes in 2006 summer when I went back to teaching after having 3 babies. I wrote under "GraceK." I signed up a year later, so my start date looks like July 2007.

I used to post a lot more than I do these days (and I still post a fair amount, obviously )

dutchgirl, that was cool! Iíve never seen that. I sure remember Phil, but I canít remember when he left. Itís been a long time.

I still think of you as GraceK! Partly because itís easier to make it shorter.

2012 here. I remember when I first came here quite well. I had just moved to the city and was nervous about teaching in an "inner city" school, so that was my first post. Unfortunately the year ended up being awful, not for the reasons you'd think. Most of the students were fine, but I had a horrible nutcase admin. I lived on the "vent" board that year and got lots of good advice!

It was really so lucky I happened upon this place. Posting what was going on in my school/with my P and getting so many responses telling me it was NOT normal or okay saved my sanity. Especially since I was a newer teacher at the time, and in a new position/location, it helped me understand that I wasn't the problem!
