Our Story

SchoolBoxCo's Purpose

Our purpose is to support a family's participation in the education of their children while growing the parent-child relationship.

We hope to make learning fun again and help parents gain a clear understanding of what their kiddos are doing in school. We want moms and dads to be intimately involved with the education of their children, but not in an overwhelming and daunting way. We strive to help parents feel confident and comfortable when it comes to teaching and learning with their children. We all know how quickly the world is changing, we want to be prepared with better relationships and tools to help our children grow and succeed.

We want you to find joy in learning alongside your child.

Hello! My name is Cassie! I am a teacher of over 10 years and a mother of 5. I grew up in Kansas City, but now reside with my husband and children in the Denver Metro Area in Colorado. In the Spring of 2020, when the world shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic, I saw many families around me struggling for consistency in their parenting and education of their children. I don’t know if I would consider myself an expert, but I have had so much experience with kids, both as an educator and as a parent. I know what works and what doesn’t work and hope SchoolBoxCo can be a great resource for children and their parents. We all know that children learn best by doing and SchoolBoxCo offers families a chance to come together, learn and play.

Hello, I am Gemma (pronounced Hemma)! I am originally from Chihuahua, Mexico but I have spent the majority of my life in the United States. I currently live in Denver, CO with my husband and three kids. I am a former teacher, specializing in elementary and bilingual education. I joined the SchoolBoxCo team in January 2021 when Cassie, my former teaching teammate and dear friend, presented me with the idea. As a parent and former educator, I believe SchoolBoxCo is a great way to involve children in creative and fun learning. By being standards-based, we can assure parents that the activities your children engage in will aid in and further the learning they are doing in school. It is such an honor to have the opportunity to continue my love of education and to support you and your kids.
