Welcome! My name is Teri and I am the cupcake behind A Cupcake for the Teacher… where teaching is sweet!
I am an elementary school teacher from New Jersey (and I’m very happy to say, I have no idea how to pump my own gas). I simply LOVE teaching! I have taught 1st, 2nd, and even 6th grade… my heart is definitely with the little ones, and firsties are my favorite!
My adventure as a teacher-author began at the end of 2011 as a way to share my ideas with others. I am passionate about creating FUN and engaging activities for the classroom.
I opened my Teachers Pay Teachers store alongside my blog. In my shop, you can find tons of resources for reading, writing, math and more! I also love to incorporate crafts into many of my activities… who doesn’t love a cute craftivity?!
Apart from teaching, I am a wife and mama. My husband and I were married in July 2011. Since then, we have welcomed two beautiful girls to our family, Summer and Leila. They are both so sweet, silly, and snuggly!
For fun, I love shopping, crafting, reading, and catching up on my favorite TV shows (tell me DVR isn’t one of the best inventions). I also enjoy a little pampering every now and then… nothing like a fresh mani/pedi 🙂
Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the Internet. I love being able to share my ideas with you! You can also find me on Instagram and Facebook, where I post about new products, freebies, and teaching tips!
I love apple season! 🍎 This cute anchor chart is so simple to make! All you need is some red bulletin board paper to create your giant apple and a little construction paper. Then have your students brainstorm adjectives to describe apples. Follow it up with some fun apple crafts, activities, and even a tasting! 🍏 ... See MoreSee Less

These charts are SO so helpful for teaching little learners! While kids are sounding words out, remind them to check the charts for those vowel teams, tricky vowels, and bossy R words! My littlest just started first and I’m printing a fresh set for her to use at home while she reads and writes. You can grab these charts and more at the link in my profile! bit.ly/CupcakeMiniPhonics ... See MoreSee Less
