Behind the Brand

Hi! I'm Uyen.

Mama to three | Occupational Therapist turned Creative Trailblazer | Teachit Co founder

One of the first questions new people ask me is this:
“Uyen! Did you create Teachit Co because you’re a primary school teacher?”

The short answer?

The long answer?
Also nope. But I began my journey from occupational therapist to creative business owner in 2016. Back then, Teachit Co was part of my other business, Frame This.

Soon after, it became clear to me that Teachit Co was never meant to be an ‘extra’ off something else. Teachit Co had its very own vision.

It was to be a special, party-starting, confetti-throwing, joy-sprinkling community of its very own. It was to be bright. Bold. Uplifting and empowering.

My inspiration for this vision? My son Ryan who had learning difficulties at school. For him, stamps were encouragement. They were engagement incentives. They were a moment of uplift in his days. Seeing his behaviour transform. His confidence grow. And his excitement for education bloom, it was clear that these stamps were more than the sum of their parts.

The right teaching tools transform early education experiences. They ignite creativity, enhance productivity, and inspire imagination. They are exchanges of joy every day.

Through conversations with our community, teachers, parents, my kids (the key decision makers) and a whole lot of research, I’m inspired to create products that solve pain points. That are customisable. That are handheld delights.

Where to from here?

Me, my husband Paul and our three littles Jessica, Ryan and Jayden, are hard at work developing, product testing and creating exchanges of joy for you to share with your little explorers.

I created Teachit Co because I believe in the power of early childhood education. To sprinkle a little joy into every day. The seemingly perfect ones and the totally imperfect ones.

Because the small things we do today?
They’re going to live on in the minds of our little ones forever. Lifelong reminders that they are valued. Worthy. Brave. That kindness feels as good to give away as it does to receive. And that education is the gateway to a better tomorrow.

Thank you for coming on this journey with us.

Then we have 𝘙𝘺𝘢𝘯, my cheeky boy who is highly skilled in the art of Product Testing (because after all, he is the reason why there is so much #stamplove in this household)

We have 𝘑𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘤𝘢 as our Social Media intern. She’s small, but my goodness, she is SASSY!

𝘑𝘢𝘺𝘥𝘦𝘯 excels in his management of Logistics and often assists with product development.

And that’s me, 𝘜𝘺𝘦𝘯 🙋🏻‍♀️ the Creative Director and Founder of Teachit Co.
