Our Founder, Toby Foote
Toby loves science and technology. They were his favorite studies in school and at home. Growing up, his father would bring home 50-pound “portable computers” and modems that he would use to create online bulletin board systems (BBS) before the internet was around. He created communities of like-minded kids that taught each other how to use build computers, write computer programs, and use technology to improve our everyday lives.
His desire to explore this area of study didn’t stop there. He went on to college at the University of Cincinnati to gain a degree in Information Systems from the nationally-ranked Lindner College of Business. After college, he went on to spend decades gaining programming and technology experience, working in technology groups at NASA, Compass Technologies, and KeyBank. However, after having children of his own, Toby wanted to return to his roots of teaching other kids, this time as a grown-up and educator. Classroom Antics was born.
Today, Toby takes great pride in knowing that since Classroom Antics’ inception in 2007, over 10,000 children (including his own) have channeled their excitement and creativity into highly valuable technology skills.
