Teacher Created Materials (TCM) was inducted into the California State University Fullerton Center for Family Business Hall of Fame in a ceremony held on March 13th, 2018 at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, Calif.

“This honor is especially meaningful this year because we are celebrating our 40th Anniversary”, said Founder and CEO, Rachelle Cracchiolo. “I am so proud of our achievements and to be working with my two talented daughters to bring our vision and mission to teachers and students worldwide. And I must acknowledge the incredible TCM extended family of full and part time staff who are always striving to create a world in which children love to learn.”

Founded in 1977 by Ms. Cracchiolo, a classroom teacher in the Fountain Valley School District, TCM’s award-winning products and services are currently sold into schools in all 50 states and in 89 countries around the world. With 200 employees based at the headquarters in Huntington Beach, as well as around the country and the world, TCM is led by President Corinne Burton and Executive Vice President, Deanne Mendoza, Rachelle’s daughters both of whom have a necessary mixture of teaching and business backgrounds.

TCM’s partnership with CSUF is long-standing – Rachelle received both her undergraduate and Master’s Degrees from the university and in 2006 the company endowed the Rachelle Cracchiolo Exceptional Curriculum Development Award to provide opportunities for CSUF education students to develop their ideas into products.

As a proud Titan, Rachelle is especially excited to give the men’s basketball team a shout-out as they head into the NCAA Tournament against Purdue this weekend. Go Titans!
