Evan’s favorite teacher was Ms. McConville, his geography teacher. Learning was fun in Ms. McConville’s class and he still uses what he learned from her today.{{ moreevan }} →

A transplant to New York from Dublin, Evan started his career as an audio-engineer doing studio and radio work, and restoring vintage soul and blues recordings for a US record label. But a computer-geek at heart since his teenage years, he was soon drawn into that as a profession. Since then he has spent 17 years developing software in diverse fields including television and publishing, on ​different platforms including server, mobile​,​ and desktop. The last 10 years have been spent in education technology. When not indoors in front of a computer, he can probably be found sailing a boat somewhere.

Gwen’s favorite teacher was her 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Fruitt. Mrs. Fruitt made learning challenging, had high expectations, and was fun. Her April Fools' Day joke was classic.{{ moregwen }} →

Gwen comes from a long line of educators and attended public school ​o​n the mean streets of suburban Massachusetts. After what felt like a lifetime in Management Consulting, she made her way to New York City where she started work at Teachscape. There, she developed a passion for improving public education and since then has worked exclusively on improving public education using technology through her work at New Visions for Public Schools, NewSchools Venture Fund, as an Entrepreneur in Residence at Bellwether Education Partners, and now at CoreSpring. When not working, she’s catching up on the news, running up and down the west side highway, and chasing a 7lb Chihuahua who thinks he is a Great Dane.
