About The Education Center, aka the The MAILBOX®

The Education Center, aka the The MAILBOX®, was founded in 1973 by Marge and Jake Michel. Like many other educators, they 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. Countless teachers have contributed to The MAILBOX® for more than 30 plus years. Some teachers are so excited about the opportunity to create ideas for other teachers that they join our staff in Greensboro, North Carolina.
