Hi! I am Leslie, the inventor of MathKit. 

I am a math teacher turned stay-at-home mom. I love math and am working to foster deep math understanding and a love of learning in my eight-year-old daughter and my four-year-old son.

I believe parents of kids grades K-3 are in a perfect position to help form their child's view of math and math learning. I want to guide parents to help their children get a strong, confident start in math.

For fifteen years, I taught and tutored math from age five up through college. My classroom teaching experience has been primarily college and high school, including Math for Elementary Educators courses. I am currently immersed in my daughter's elementary school math experience, and I have read and learned much about teaching and learning math in the early years of school.

I know what math skills kids need to build a strong foundation for future math. Working with older students has also shown me how essential it is to build the right mindset for math learning.

That is why I created MathKit -- to help every family play their way to math confidence!

Hi! I am Rebekka, the designer of MathKit.

I am a designer, artist, and illustrator who has a passion for simple and beautiful things. I have a degree in photography from the University of Georgia and worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in Chicago for a decade before I had kids.

Now, I create my own art and occasionally take on projects that I am passionate about, like MathKit!

As a mother of two boys ages ten and five, I was excited when I heard Leslie's passion for math understanding and her approach that makes learning math a fun bonding experience between parent and child. I have teamed up with Leslie to help bring the games and the overall product to life
