Brenda & Joe Van Mol
First Team Education, Inc. was created in 2003 by Joe and Brenda Van Mol. Their goal is to
establish and maintain strong and mutually beneficial relationships with all levels of Indiana's
public and private educators.
First Team Education,Inc. currently represents K-12 curriculum lines, professional books and a
trade book line.
Joe likes to call First Team Education "The Varsity of Independents in Indiana". Even though Brenda
chuckles at his mere mention of the thought, he quickly reminds her that there are
NO independent book sellers in Indiana with as much combined experience in consulting,
basal sales, and teaching depth as the two of them have together. He may have a point.
Educators buy from them because of their reputation. Give them a call and let them serve you!

Brenda. We all are proud to be called First Team Education!
