  1. I have been using Mailbox magazine for several years through our school library. I have found it very valuable for the advice from other teachers, to the activity pages to reinforce skills taught, to decorating bulletin boards and many other uses. The website has now been added to my favorites for quick access. Thank you for suppling another resource needed to make teaching a joy.

  2. Thanks for keeping me up-to-date with contests and grants!! I try to keep up on my own, but school always gets in the way. Thanks for making it easier for me!!

  3. I do not know how a teacher can get by without the help of the Mailbox magazines and Learning magazine! I value them so much, and I look forward to receiving emails, updates to blog entries, learning about freebies/grants/contests/new products, and fresh ideas for teaching! Thank you for all you do to make our jobs easier!

  4. This is great–another great way Mailbox helps keep teachers informed and excited about their work. Thanks!

  5. I love the Mailbox Blogs you keep us all up to date. I have used the field trip factory twice this year. I LOVE IT. They are so helpful and really take the work out of planning trips. Best yet the trips are Great.
