ABOUT

KickUp is a professional learning platform for live support. We work with schools, districts, charter and training organizations to make effective collaboration and coaching happen at scale by connecting teachers with teacher leaders within their extended community.

RESULTS

“I feel like a lot of the help we get is not often what we need at the moment, so it’s very nice to get what we need, when we need it. This is great. It’s to the point, and it’s flexible. It’s the perfect thing to help me go from good to great.”

Sarah M., 1st Grade Reading Teacher

“Levi was on our red flag list to quit after his first year. Thanks to KickUp, he’s one of our high flyers and wants to stay another year.”

Anna A., Regional Director Teach For America

“[Collaboration through KickUp] has been the single most helpful thing for my classroom. I’ve walked through my entire essay writing teaching process and begun implementing a workshop model. Based on this new lesson structure, my lesson planning is way more efficient and my students are learning more content.”

Chrissy T., High School English Teacher

“I saw a huge growth in vocabulary. I had about 60% or less of students scoring at least an 80% on vocabulary. Capi introduced me to multi-sensory teaching methods that really pushed more students (about 80%) to score at least an 80% on their assessments for vocabulary.”

Washington N., 1st Grade Core Teacher

“KickUp has helped me get the science-specific support that I was unable to get at my school. I focus on practical ways to make science lessons and labs more student-centered. Every time we meet, I walk away with something new to implement in my classroom.”

Ian B., Middle School Science Teacher

“I was able to implement feedback and ideas from all sessions instantly into my own teaching style. I gained a clear understanding on how to get my students from the concrete application to representation and finally move them to abstract. Daily exit tickets have been over 80% mastery and 20% extremely close to approaching mastery.”

Taivona J., 5th Grade Math Teacher

“So much can be accomplished in a short amount of time when the conversation is focused and the person I am talking to is an expert in my subject area. I like the format of this tool because it allows for real conversation in real time.”

Marissa S., High School English Teacher

“I love that it’s real teachers talking to one another. It’s really helpful because I get specific, detailed feedback and ways to grow. There is nothing better than this.”

Susan M., Middle School Math Teacher
