Unlearn Education - CEO
I'm the Founder of Unlearn Education and previously mSchool. For my work in ed-tech I was named to Forbes Magazine's "30 Under 30", Education Week’s "Nine People Who Will Shape Education in the Next 10 Years,” and awarded Teach for America's National Social Innovation Award. I started in education teaching middle school math at an alternative school in post-Katrina New Orleans, my home town.
Unlearn Education combines proven literacy assessment strategies with cutting edge machine learning. The result is a set of deceptively simple tools to help teachers assess both fluency and comprehension in a fraction of the time needed for traditional assessments. In 10 minutes you can understand where students fall along a scientifically established literacy spectrum: future-forward tech aimed at helping every child reach literacy proficiency.
