In 1973, Marge and Jake Michel were educators frustrated by the lack of practical, ready-to-use materials for the classroom—so they created resources in their spare time. In 1979, they began producing The Mailbox, a magazine full of ideas from teachers for teachers. Since then, countless teachers have contributed to The Mailbox products.
In addition to The Mailbox magazine, we publish The Mailbox Books, The Mailbox Yearbook, Teacher's Helper magazine and Learning magazine. We also created digital experiences, including our fully interactive digital edition of The Mailbox, TheMailbox.com resources and Gold planning tools, eBooks, and whiteboard activities.
All of our products are produced with teachers' needs in mind—from keeping the classroom creative to aligning to standards.
