Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.
