Hi Everyone!

This time of year is exciting for us as educators in the northern hemisphere as we prepare for fall semester. There’s so much to look forward to.

You’re not oblivious to the fact that there are still a lot of uncertainties around what school is going to look like, and neither am I, but I would encourage all of us to take a minute and think about all of the great reasons to be glad to be in the education space. We truly get to have a big impact on the future.

It can seem a little daunting, but the resources are better than ever, and education companies (yes, including Stukent) are innovating like CRAZY.Stay tuned. We’ve got a lot of really game changing announcements coming about resources for all of our educators and students.

Teacher of the Month

Jesse Zitrin is a native San Franciscan and has lived and worked in the Bay Area most of my life. In 2008 Jesse earned his Master’s in Sport Management at the University of San Francisco and started working at Juma Ventures. Juma is a social enterprise dedicated to helping youth through college and out of poverty, by employing them in wholly-owned stadium concessions operations. As the business manager, he worked on hundreds of events at Giants, A’s, Warriors, 49ers, Raiders, and Cal Bears games, and saw close-up how high schoolers think, learn, work, and feel in the real world. It also showed him the power of business as an authentic teaching tool.
