We care about teachers and know you are often working on a limited budget, particularly in public schools. Our mission is to make technology friendlier and more accessible to all, and we know that the cost of educational materials factors into this! Our team spends a lot of time discussing how to keep our small company going and continuing to offer high quality materials – while also doing as much as we can to increase access.
