Every classroom deserves a teacher

Our team’s goal is to connect reliable, high-quality substitute teachers with the schools and students that need them.

Improving how schools and subs connect

We believe in the power of technology to improve the way that people work together and to address tough, human problems – like classroom vacancies caused by the teacher shortage.

Our team of technology, business, and education experts focuses on building innovative ways to make it easier to match substitute teachers with schools.
