Jennifer Medbery, founder and CEO of Kickboard, is a software developer who spent three years as a high school math teacher. Kickboard was developed out of Jen’s first-hand experience in the classroom. She and her colleagues needed a way to make better real-time instructional decisions based on data that showed which skills students knew, which they had yet to master, and how student behavior impacted academic achievement - in short, a classroom relationship management system, or CRM, for teachers. Jen left the classroom to build the tools she wished she had in the classroom and Kickboard is now used by thousands of educators nationally.
