Our Story, Our Mission, Our Passion

ck with letter alive boxHi! – Our mission is to help early learners become proficient in reading and math by 3rd grade by equipping teachers with engaging technology. Listen to this radio interview with Cynthia Kaye.

When my two adopted sons came to America, they had difficulty learning to read. I tried everything on the market to help them but nothing worked. Faced with this challenge, I was able to pull from my career experience working as a teacher and being CEO of a company that provided educational products. I was determined to find a solution to not only help my sons but also young children everywhere.

With access to the right people and technology resources, I decided to take a risk and began development on a solution that would help kids learn to read in a new and engaging way. Having been introduced to Augmented Reality (3D without the glasses), I knew this was exactly the secret sauce we needed to capture young imaginations.

Soon after, Letters alive was born along with a zoo full of 26 animal characters that are now a partck with kids
of our family. A new company, Alive Studios, was launched and hundreds of incredible success stories began pouring in from teachers using Letters alive, who we affectionately call our Zoo Keepers. We look forward to you becoming one of our newest Zoo Keepers and joining our mission to get children proficient in reading and math by the 3rd grade!
