As we sit here in the airport departure lounge in Austin, TX waiting to return to NYC we have an opportunity to pause and reflect on what has been an incredible week.
It all started at 2pm on Sunday when we pitched our math app, Exam Elf to 4 Superintendents who experienced first hand how Exam Elf is helping students, parents and teachers who are preparing for the upcoming STAAR exams. It was a really engaging and positive conversation and it feels great to have our app validated by an audience who are at the forefront of education.
We then had two days as an exhibitor within the Innovation Zone at the Texas Association of School Administrators Midwinter Conference and had the opportunity to speak with teachers, principals and superintendents and learnt from those on the front line of education, what was most important to them and how Exam Elf could work most effectively for students and teachers.
Two highlights were a veteran principal coming up to us at the end of the conference, and telling us he thought we had the best product there from over 800 exhibits and a special needs education teacher letting us know that our pilot special needs components are critically needed to help her work.
Since the presentation and exhibition we have received over 1,000 new users of Exam Elf and we’re growing by the minute. Thank you to all of you who have supported us on this amazing journey so far.
We also received our video which is now ready to be uploaded to the App Store, you can see it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4n_D_i1Szw
