How It Got Started

The Roots

In 2019, two moms who happen to also be educators connected on Twitter. They discovered a shared passion for bringing children's two greatest resources together, parents and educators. Finding inspiration in blogs and content being created by parents and educators they saw how each group could do so much more if they brought those innovative ideas to the same table. A friendship, a mission, and the EDUTable were born.
