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 how @keepingitmagicalinsecond organizes Fast Finisher printables in those pretty rainbow drawers! With the task card right on the front, it’s so easy for kids to find what they’re looking for. Also, color by code is definitely a *favorite* FF activity! ... See MoreSee Less
Which one is your favorite?! 💚💜 You only need a few supplies (that I bet you already have) to recreate these doors! I did most of this with bulletin board paper and a lot of tape 😜 and I printed the words out on cardstock. ... See MoreSee Less
It’s spooky season!! 🧡 October starts this week (my birthday month!🥳) so it’s officially time for all things pumpkin and Halloween!! Here’s a peek at my Fast Finishers set (K-2) for October. There’s a mix of both topics included! Have you prepped your board yet?! 🎃 Links to this set of fast finisher activities as well as 3-5 are in my profile— the pink bars up top! ... See MoreSee Less
