We hope to alleviate the national teacher shortage. Selected was founded to help teachers and schools make higher quality matches with ease. A better fit and discovery process means better retention.

We match teachers with schools and jobs they love. We bring our education and social impact backgrounds, programming and design chops, and passion to accomplish this goal.
