“Let’s face it, a teacher’s job is to inspire learning and that’s a tough job! It’s even more challenging in some schools and geographies than in others and the new Curriki site will make it easier than ever for educators to inspire learning in their students every day,” commented Scott McNealy, Curriki Co-Founder and Board Member.
“Without the generosity of donors, sponsors, and partners, Curriki would not be able to bring these resources to the educators, parents, and students who need them,” said Kim Jones, CEO, Curriki. “Our dedicated members rely on Curriki for free high-quality teaching and learning content and we are so thrilled that we are able to deliver it all through the new mobile-responsive website.”
