About BetterLesson
BetterLesson empowers K-12 teachers to build a modern classroom: learner-centered, culturally responsive, and personalized to meet the needs of all students. Instead of the conventional one-size-fits-all professional development approach, BetterLesson supports educators with differentiated support across the school year -- using a mix of self-directed online courses, remote 1:1 coaching, non-evaluative learning walks, and collaborative in-person and virtual workshops centered around targeted outcomes. All of our learning experiences are powered by the BetterLesson Lab, giving participants a centralized hub to measure outcomes of their learning and district leaders a complete picture of the impact of their professional learning program. We match each educator with a world-class coach and then leverage our technology to suggest research-backed teaching strategies aligned to their area of focus, measure impact on student learning, and improve teaching practice continuously through rapid iteration. This process leads to off-the-charts teacher love (our data shows teachers love BetterLesson more than Apple users love their iPhones), high administrator engagement, and, most importantly, dramatic teacher and student growth.

BetterLesson has raised over $30M of venture capital and grant funding, serves over 400 school districts, sees 850K+ monthly active users accessing our online lessons and strategies, and is expanding quickly.

We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status.
