Co-founders Mary and Robby reside in Austin, TX. CEO and Curator, Mary, was an elementary school teacher for several years teaching 3rd and 1st grades. CTO and Art Director, Robby, has worked with schools on education and art programs. He is a working artist and designer.
After teaching in the classroom for several years, Mary was inspired to use her background in education & knowledge of "teaching culture" to give teachers and students something to look forward to, and add a little fun to the classroom. Robby, of course, was excited to be on board after getting to know the life of a teacher thru Mary. They brainstormed the best way to get teachers fun resources for their students, and build a sense of community in the classroom. Well, what better way than to put it all in a box and deliver it to their doorstep each month? The team's skills and expertise lend perfectly to the curation of each ElementaryBox they send.
