Teacher Created Materials develops innovative and imaginative educational materials and services for students, worldwide. Everything we do is created by teachers for teachers and students to make teaching more effective and learning more fun.
For over 40 years Teacher Created Materials (TCM) has published innovative, imaginative, and award-winning resources for teachers and students in all subjects for Grades K-12. Our driving vision is to Create a World in which Children Love to Learn!
Teacher Created Materials began in 1977 when Founder and CEO Rachelle Cracchiolo wrote her first book, Quick Fun Art, with a fellow teacher. TCM continued to expand its product line, always using the latest research and best classroom practices to ensure student success. TCM's products are evidence based - our data shows that our products have directly increased student achievement.
As our company has grown, one thing has remained consistent - teachers around the world depend on us to produce quality, easy to use, educationally sound materials.
Today, Teacher Created Materials is a leading educational publisher with products that are used in classrooms in all 50 states and in 89 countries. Everything we publish is still created by teachers for teachers and students because we still believe that no one knows what teachers need more than other teachers and we know that all students can become lifelong learners. And each year we provide professional development to over 10,000 teachers, helping them to perfect their craft.
It is that sense of commitment to teachers, students, and the community that exemplifies our mission, vision, and values and underlies everything we do.
