Toolboxes for Teaching launched on October 1, 2018 as a sister company to The Good and the Beautiful.
Toolboxes for Teaching is a family-owned business run by us, Brandon and Mandy Rohner. We started our homeschool journey in 2013. Our four children have all been homeschooled at various times, but we currently homeschool our ten-year-old and nine-year-old, while our teenagers attend public school. We homeschool with two other families 100% of the time in what we lovingly refer to as our "Little Red Schoolhouse" group. As a family, we love the idea of homeschooling, but have found the implementation more difficult than we imagined it would be. When we started using The Good and the Beautiful curriculum we discovered homeschooling doesn't have to be so hard. It can be fun! And easy! It was a huge breath of fresh air. Mandy started working for The Good and the Beautiful in 2016 and the idea for various kits of materials blossomed over time. Jenny Phillips encouraged Mandy to start Toolboxes for Teaching as an official sister company to provide these kits to everyone!
We know how hard it is to do all the activities and experiments in every course or science unit, but we also know that it's the activities and experiments that make the learning exciting! We want to keep parents AND children happy by making those activities and experiments more convenient. When you purchase our kits, you have almost everything on hand that you'll need. We are passionate about making homeschooling, and life, a little bit easier for you!
No one likes to spend more money than they have to. Why buy a whole ream of cardstock when you only need 6 sheets? Why buy a whole package of steel wool when you only need a small piece? We buy in bulk to get big savings, and you're only buying what you need. Buying a toolbox to go with your course saves you money and time!
We are busy, and we know you probably are too! We like it when life is made a little more convenient for us. There have been too many times when I've skipped the "fun" part of a lesson because I didn't have the materials on hand. I'll even tell myself that I'll pick up the materials later and we'll do it tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure that has never happened. With our toolboxes you'll have what you need right there.
