why is studentreasures the best options for teachersAs a kid, I used to stay up late reading all the time. As soon as the lights went out and the door closed, I’d huddle up under the covers with a flashlight and a book and read until the words blurred and my eyelids drooped. And when I finally slipped off into slumberland, I’d dream of the worlds I’d been reading about, the ones I could see so clearly in my mind I almost believed I’d really been there.

To be able to visit such worlds is a blessing, but to be given the chance to create such a world and share it with others? That is a gift that I hardly dared dream of at the time—but one which I have since come to believe every child deserves. That is why we at Studentreasures have worked so hard to build the best student publishing company we could dream up—so that we could help today’s students and teachers bring their own dreams to life.

Supporting Teachers and Students is Our #1 Priority

I believe that the key to being the best student publishing company around is keeping you and your students’ best interests in mind. We’re dedicated to giving you and your kids the best tools, services and experience possible so that you can get the most out of your classbook project.

We measure success in smiles.

we measure success in smilesThere’s nothing more rewarding than watching students get their first look at their brand-new classbooks. The wonder and joy in their eyes is priceless—and their teachers’ reactions are equally heartwarming. I love being part of the process that ultimately sparks that joy. Every step in our publishing process is designed to be as simple and straightforward as possible, allowing you to focus on your kids and your project while we take care of the rest.

“Amazing activity for the kids! Each student’s face lit up when they saw what they created as a class. What an incredible way to get children excited and proud to write.”

Fostering student creativity is at the heart of what we do.
