"We are here to give American educators a better way to provide for their students and their families," said Michael Thiemann, co-founder and CEO of Zebit. "Although teachers may use Zebit to furnish their classrooms during the back to school season, Zebit is available to manage all life event purchases from car repairs to holiday gifts to moving expenses at any time of the year."
Zebit has also been working with school districts to help increase the visibility of Zebit's financial wellness offering. By sponsoring the free employee benefit from Zebit, school districts foster employee well-being with a savings and credit safety net that include budgeting tools, online education, and access to a worry-free and interest-free credit model.
Current statistics that show how teachers spend personal money to equip their classrooms, and quotes from many who have benefited from using Zebit, are available on an infographic at zebit.com/press/2016/09/09/educators/. School districts and educators interested in joining Zebit can visit zebit.com/educators to learn more.
