Steven "Yes, I used to have a lot more hair" Francisco

Steven Francisco, President and CEO.

A native of the south Bronx, Steven taught third grade English language learners there from 2003-2007 as a member of Teach For America. Recognizing patterns in his student data and bottlenecks in his work-flow, he developed Jeven: a rubric based system that collects and reports on real-time student performance data to compliment testing without the need for typing. Today, his passion for alternative assessments and reducing teacher workload resonates with the dozens of schools across the world which use Innovation Teaching’s software and hardware solutions.
