Meet the Support Team!

When it's time to go back to school, things can sometimes get a bit hectic. But, as with all of the old superhero cartoons of our youth, isn't it great to know you've got your own resident sidekick to help you out? I mean seriously, how can any good Super get the job done without a little help? That's where we come in.

Your Eduphoria Support Team is standing at the ready to make sure this 'back to school' season and the entire school year go as smoothly as possible. From technical support to dad jokes, from product updates to movie reviews, they're here for you. And with so much personality going around, why not take a minute to get to know them just a bit better?
