Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) March 11, 2014

TES Australia (http://www.tesaustralia.com), the free education resource sharing website for teachers, today announced that the 100,000th member has just joined. Launched in July 2013, TES Australia was developed by TSL Education, the publishers of TES Connect (http://www.tesconnect.com) the largest network of teachers in the world in partnership with, the New South Wales Board of Studies, the Australian Education Union and the Centre for Professional Learning.

Fiona Hall, our 100,000th member has been a teacher for 8 years. “I have always wondered about your site. I have often noticed that when I am researching topics, TES seems to have information about those topics, said Fiona. “I'm not very computer literate, but I decided I would be brave and join and I am certainly glad I have. “

Bill Donoghue, COO, TSL Education said: “We’re delighted to welcome Fiona Hall as our 100,000th member and thank everyone who has helped make TES Australia a huge success. We estimate that there are 257,000 teachers in Australia, and to have 100,000 members register in a short period is incredible”. ‘We’ve noticed that Australian members are great at sharing, and understand that teaching is a collaborative profession. The support, feedback and engagement have been fantastic. I look forward to introducing TES Australia to the next 100,000 teachers!”
