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!

Summer break is the perfect time to prep Writing Topic Cards for your classroom!✏️ There are tons of topics and each card comes with helpful vocabulary. It’s a great tool to combat the ever-popular complaint, “I don’t know what to write about!” 😉 ... See MoreSee Less
