How to Prepare Teachers for Nontraditional Education Jobs

In Chapter 11 of 22 in his 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, education technology entrepreneur Adam Geller answers "What Has Your Work Experience Taught You About How Education Careers are Changing?" As a former teacher now running an EdTech startup that provides a video platform to train teachers, Geller finds the more time he spends in education, the more ways he sees to affect change in a nontraditional education career. From online video to game design, the world of job opportunities in education continues to expand beyond teaching and administration job roles Geller learned about as a science teacher.

Adam Geller is founder and CEO of Edthena, a video platform enabling online teacher coaching, peer review, and group learning. He is a recent Education Ventures fellow at the Kauffman Foundation and the founder of Teach For Us, a network connecting Teach for America corps members and alumni. He earned a BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a MA from the University of Missouri-Saint Louis.
