About Us

My name is Sara. Thank you so much for visiting my online store. During my children's primary years they loved the puzzle maps and as my children entered elementary and now the middle school stage, I wanted them to use the pin map material. I found they were out of my budget, as the wooden Montessori pin maps cost almost $1000 for just 6 continent sets! I set out to create them myself and that is how Pin It Maps started. From there, I worked to commercially manufacture the maps, labels, and flag poles, so other families and schools on a budget could enjoy the pin map material, too!

You ask, what kind of training do you need to make pin maps? I have my Masters of Science in Information Systems from Indiana University. I moved to Washington DC to start my career as an IT Consultant. My assignments included doing database work for the Department of State and the US Patent and Trademark Office.

While in DC, I met my husband and after our first child was born, I left my career to become a stay-at-home mom, Montessori homeschooler, and now an entrepreneur. Homeschooling them fulfilled my dream to teach. My mother was a biology and earth science teacher. She taught for over 30 years and has used her experience to write the teaching resources.
