Technology for the classroom

How Teacherstack Got Started

The story of a 2nd grade teacher and a software engineer...

As a first year teacher, Amanda Darnell used pocket charts and slips of paper to organize and run her centers. After talking to her husband, Jason, he suggested an online solution. When they realized what Amanda was looking for did not already exist, Jason started working on Teacherstack. It worked well in Amanda's classroom and before long, other teachers at Amanda's school became interested in using it. Jason and Amanda soon started adding more apps to Teacherstack. It now has eight apps and more users than they ever expected.

Amanda and Jason hope that Teacherstack can help other teachers the same way it helped Amanda.

Fun fact: the Teacherstack rocket icon was inspired by Huntsville, Alabama's nickname, the Rocket City (where Amanda and Jason moved their first year of marriage).
