Last year we unveiled the iThemes Education Program to offer our tools and training for schools, educators and students. (In fact, we’re offering qualified educators our entire WordPress web design inventory at no cost.)
During that time we haven’t had someone fully dedicated to building relationships with educators and schools to be a resource and help to them.
This week I’m pleased to announce our new Education Director, Lindsey Miller, to the iThemes team and community. Lindsey previously was the executive director of The Div, Inc., the nonprofit tech foundation we helped start last year.
In this new role, Lindsey will be working directly with educators, administrators and students to expand and enhance our Education Program. She’ll be setting up phone calls and informational webinars to help introduce educators to the program, as well as blogging and tweeting and attending education tradeshows and conferences, among others things.
If you’re a school administrator or educator looking to partner with iThemes Education to offer quality web design training for your students, please let us know via our Education contact form and Lindsey would be glad to schedule a call with you.
Lindsey will be hosting a “Getting Started in the iThemes Education Program” webinar to help educators and students see what they have access to on July 30 from noon to 1 p.m. Central Standard Time. This is a great time to get your questions answered and give input on the program. Be sure to signup for the Getting Started with iThemes Education webinar here.
