Press release from: NetPub/MCA Inc.

4 Educators reveal their origin story and interdisciplinary approach to education

Poughkeepsie, NY: NetPub Education is a new division of NetPub/MCA company, an award-winning digital printing company which recognizes the need to provide the parent, homeschooler and teacher with accessible, high-quality, dynamic, enriching and fun content in all subject areas, from math and science to history, literature, character building, critical thinking and more; Grades K to 12.

With over 40 published instructional-materials books, a group of four educators recently celebrated 38 years of collaboration. Jim McAlpine, Betty Weincek, Sue Jeweler, and Marion Finkbinder have "been working together longer than most people have been married!" How did this incredible partnership begin and why has it lasted for decades?
Jim, a Specialist for Gifted and Talented in the local school system, tapped a group of teachers to attend a workshop. He chose them for their commitment to children, creativity, professionalism, and ability to think outside the box. That workshop became the catalyst for an exciting summer program designed for gifted students in the county.
They recognized that when working together there was something magical happening for the kids and themselves. They decided to meet and work on a project that would include everything they believed in as educators. A four-person writing career began! They named themselves, “THE COHORTS.” They followed a creative pattern they used since the late 1970s: someone would suggest an idea then another would be enthusiastic about the idea or take off on an applicable tangent. There would be a burst of energetic talking and then raucous laughter. By the end of the evening, they would have written pages worth of usable material.
For THE COHORTS, the energy, excitement, and focus that had begun decades ago continued as they created new books covering a vast array of subjects and topics. Respect, openness, communication, continuing laughter, and a shared dedication to create instructional materials that enrich and extend the minds and experiences of students continue to be at the forefront of their work.
