About The Education Center, LLC
The Education Center was founded in 1973 by Marge and Jake Michel who,
like many other educators, were frustrated by the lack of practical,
ready-to-use materials for the classroom. So they created several
products in their spare time, and the company grew from there.
Today hundreds of thousands of teachers across the country depend on The
Education Center’s products to enrich their lesson plans, to speed up
their planning time, and to leave them more time to do what they love
best—teach. Learn more about The Education Center at TheMailbox.com.
