O'Block Books is dedicated to publishing and selling affordable, valuable teaching resources. The company is owned by Tina O'Block. She has a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, a Bachelors' Degree in Elementary Education and 15 years teaching experience. As an experienced teacher she understands the time and money constraints of educators and strives to provide quality educational materials at an affordable price.
In 2002 Tina realized that the educational supply market lacked a quality curriculum for preschool/kindergarten that addressed the various needs and ability levels of all students. After many requests from fellow teachers and parents for her ideas and materials, she decided to author Now I Know My ABCs and a Whole Lot More. It quickly became a valued resource for early childhood educators and customers repeatedly asked her for more materials. This sparked her to start a company that was dedicated to high-quality early childhood educational materials at affordable prices.
The qualified staff has extensive early childhood teaching experience. This classroom experience allows them to select quality materials that are appropriate and beneficial to early childhood teachers, their students, and their classrooms. By only choosing educationally tested and appropriate materials we save our customers time, money, and disappointment.
