Co-create, become the Executive Producer and write a landmark Emmy nominated Nick Jr. television show; Blue’s Clues of course. Right?

Well, that’s exactly what co-founder of Out of the Blue Enterprises Angela Santomero did.

I spoke with her from her office in New York as she explained why she chose to pursue education through the entertainment industry versus teaching in a classroom. “Since watching Mr. Rogers, I knew how influential television can be and how modeling can be used as a teaching tool,” she said.  Angela is also the creator of the PBS Kids show, Super Why! which was actually her master’s thesis at Columbia Teacher’s College.
