Who we are:  

Elevate K-12 is on a mission to ensure every student receives a high-quality education, regardless of zip code. We are changing the way classrooms work by creating a brand-new category of live, virtual classroom instruction to give students access to exceptional teachers through our two-sided network. Our certified teachers from across the country are securely streamed into tens of thousands of classrooms, providing instruction that would otherwise be unavailable in many districts across the U.S. Our goal is to enable high-quality, live teaching for every learner in the U.S., from kindergarten through their first jobs, so they can identify and pursue their unique passions in life. We are the new way to the classroom!  

Elevate K-12 is a series-C funded (led by General Catalyst), high-growth, EdTech company enjoying strong business momentum. We are growing at 150%+ CAGR in a $50B TAM with plans to double again next year.

What does your typical day look like?

No two days are ever the same - that’s why I came to Elevate. There is so much that goes into the administration of things like HR Technology, benefits, compliance, and payroll. Each day quite honestly is pushing the boundaries of my creativity and knowledge. Part of my joy in working at a start-up is no task is too small for me and my team.
