Ebb YOU History
Ebbeson YOUniversity was started in 2014 to deliver quality training to both professionals and non-professionals. With over 1,000 students from more than 100 countries enrolled in the pilot course, 21st Century Skills for a 21st Century Workforce, Ebbeson YOUniversity expanded to include unit courses in meteorology for kids, The Caregiver's Resource courses for early childhood educators, and launched Ebb YOU Explorers: A Minecraft Learning Environment.
By 2015, Ebbeson YOUniversity courses has supported homeschool educators, k12 teachers, parents, and children of all ages with high quality training courses and opportunities to attend related webinars.
2016 marked another turning point with the publication of the Ebb YOU Easy Readers Aquatic Adventure Series children's books. This, again, transformed our children's resources to include Read-2-Me Visits.
2016 also kicked off the first Ebb YOU Read-2-Me Tour, where author, Shawna Ebbeson, read the new titles to children at children's hospitals, like the Shriner's Children's Hospital inHonolulu, Hawaii (pictured above) and child care programs in Phoenix, Mesa, Chandler, and Globe, Arizona and Honolulu, Hawaii!
In 2017, the Ebb YOU Read-2-Me Buddy Bags and the Ebb YOU Business Essentials: Get Mobile! course launched. Ebb YOU also added support for Ed.D. candidates pursuing their doctorate in education.
