Behind the Cupcake

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!

Hello! I came across your black and bright colored bulletin board! I love it. :) I am using it as my inspiration for my new classroom theme. I have a question: where did you get the banner and the letters for your bulletin board words, "calendar" "focus", etc.? I am interested in both if you have them available to purchase!

thanks :)

Hi! How do you organize your student's coloring supplies? I've seen some teachers get a bunch of colored pencils for the whole class and separating them in colored coded tins but doesn't that create a lot of foot traffic with students going and picking colors and putting them back? How do you make sure all students have the necessary coloring supplies?
