My mother, Tami, started Obsessed with Learning in 2012 as a Teachers Pay Teachers seller. In 2017, as she saw how much of a blessing it was to other teachers, she pursued it wholeheartedly. In the summer of 2020, I jumped on board as I saw the trends of education shifting with the introduction of virtual learning. Together, we create content, curriculum, bulletin boards, and have so much fun. It’s been a way to join our educational experience together and also contribute to the education community beyond our careers. This last winter, we reached the first TpT milestone. We were featured in the TpT newsletter! The Lord has truly blessed us with an amazing business that has expanded into this website and an Etsy store as well. It also has been a blessing from God to get to work professionally together. We’ve got big goals ahead and we will reach them with the Lord. #chordofthreestrands #jeremiah2911
