Jennifer Medbery, founder and CEO of Kickboard, is a software developer who spent three years in the classroom as a high school math teacher. After receiving her degree in Computer Science from Columbia University, Jen joined Teach For America in the Mississippi Delta and then served as a founding teacher at a high-performing charter school in New Orleans. There, Jen developed the idea for Kickboard. She needed a way to make better instructional decisions based on data that showed which skills students knew, which they had yet to master, and how student behavior impacted academic achievement. Jen left the classroom to buid the tools she wished she had in the classroom, and Kickboard was born. The teacher-friendly software is now used by schools in 14 states.
