“I always dreamed about being a teacher ever since I was a little girl. The VESS curriculum has been an incredible learning experience for me, and to use it with my infants in the classroom is absolutely amazing. I come to work with a big smile on my face and leave with an even bigger one. I am so grateful to have found this little gem!”

“Education first has been a family for me since the very beginning of my journey at this company. As a mother, as a teacher, as a professional, I am very thankful for the way Edu1st has impacted my life. VESS is a way of life, and it has dramatically complemented my values as a human being. It has given me the opportunity to share those values with my students in meaningful, creative, and provocative ways that I would never have imagined. I am thankful to Edu1st for awakening my real vocation, expanding my knowledge, and helping me grow as a person.”
