Meet The Creators!
NYC school teacher ALYSSA COWIT was so fascinated by the questions and comments from her Kindergarteners that she started an Instagram account, @livefromsnacktime, to chronicle them. Alyssa believes children are honest and curious, and while often perplexed, they’re brilliant – and that it’s a teacher’s job to take what children say seriously. Alyssa wants to help adults understand that children are not always acting outrageous to seek attention, but instead thinking out loud, soaking up new information, and solving problems 24/7!
A graduate of Ithaca College, ALYSSA COWIT teaches at an elementary school in New York City. In May 2015, she started the Instagram account Live from Snack Time with GREG DUNBAR, now a digital marketing manager with Walt Disney Studios. Together they have grown Live from Snack Time to more than 56K followers with accolades from Hello Giggles, Cosmopolitan, Babble, ABC News, Huffington Post, TODAY's Parent, and Ashton Kutcher.
Cowit lives in New York City and Dunbar lives in Los Angeles.
