Machiko Kobayashi

is Japanese native and studied English as her second language. She is the mom of 2 bilingual children; a boy and a girl. After earning her MBA degree, she started a film and video production company, IMAGE FACTORY, INC., in Los Angeles with her husband and business partner, Eiji Morimoto in 1985. When her son entered kindergarten, she was very impressed with how English was formally introduced. It was so different from how she learned English in Japan! Since then creating a high-quality and useful English educational video for small children has become her and Eiji's long-term project because they both have struggled to learn English due to a very late start. She contributes the main-frame ideas of each video, enjoys selecting the music, and writes the skits performed by Scout and Guin.

Anita Wheeler
Supervisor and Narrator

earned three credentials in early childhood education, elementary education and special education from California State University, Northridge. She taught many children with special needs at San Fernando Child Guidance Center and Resthaven Psychiatric Clinic for Violent Children. She also taught students with learning disabilities, ages 6 to 18, at various public schools. She has been a first grade teacher in Burbank for the last four and a half years. In 1981, Mrs. Wheeler met a truly remarkable woman, Ms. Renee Herman, who taught her how to pronounce letter sounds correctly. Ms. Herman developed a reading system called Herman Method that uses a different approach to teach the learning disabled student. Ms. Herman asked Mrs. Wheeler to do workshops throughout the United States. Mrs. Wheeler feels that she wouldn't be teaching today if Ms. Herman hadn't be a mentor to her.
