In 1991, Toby Globy Eco Action was founded upon a request from Padre Island National Seashore to develop an idea about early childhood environmental education with practical activities and songs that I presented to the agency.
Where do you want your company to be in the next 5 years?
Because of the present dire environmental circumstances (water shortage/quality in particular), I would like for Toby Globy's Eco Team to be a "required" curriculum supplement for all early childhood grade levels.
What do you do?
As the Founder and Executive Director of the Toby Globy (501c3 nonprofit corporation ) I perform administrative duties, coordinate sales, service, shipping, script and songwriting as well as conduct bilingual staff development workshops, etc.
