We Believe...
  • Teachers need less tools and more time to improve learning outcomes for students.
  • AI will not replace teachers, but it can help focus their time on what matters most.
  • Teaching is one of the hardest jobs out there. Educators deserve solutions that are designed with and explicitly for teachers.
