Juggle Learning's products are now being sold at Homecoming Coffee & BOOKS in Birmingham, AL! Juggle Learning, LLC led by Markesha Wattree designs and creates unique, hands-on, skill-based educational games for children. The debut games focus on phonics and building solid early reading skills in a way that is engaging to young learners.

Markesha combined her childhood and professional experiences to thoughtfully develop products for Juggle, taking into account that children learn more when they are having fun. Children also need less screen time and more hands-on lessons. Connecting with family through learning and play also helps them to form trusting, secure relationships with others. Juggle Learning’s products are designed to address all these key areas.

Markesha is a certified ESL teacher with a Master of Science degree in Curriculum and Instructional Design. She has over 15 years of experience in education and enjoys creating experiences and products that make learning fun for even the most resistant learner.

"I am so thankful for this opportunity!" Wattree says. We are extra proud of all your hard work and effort paying off!

Tony Woods’ Grandmother, Margaret “Morgie” Woods, would sit on the front porch with Tony in Swann, Texas (a little town outside of Tyler, Texas). They would be shelling purple hull peas and getting ready to prepare Sunday dinner which always included her tasty fried chicken. She taught her grandson, Tony, how to prepare the unique blend of spices and herbs for the chicken along with many other recipes. Tony is carrying his family traditions further and bringing unique southern fried chicken seasoning to everyone with his brand Fowl Language!
