A rare sighting of the Teacher Tapp founders together! Alex (left), Laura (centre), Becky (right)

Teacher Tapp is the brain-child of Alex, Becky and Laura, who have now all quit their proper jobs to work on it full-time!

Laura McInerney – Chief Executive Officer

As Chief Executive Officer at Teacher Tapp, Laura is out and about every day talking to teachers and to potential clients about how we can work together. She is very well-known in the education world as a former teacher and Editor of Schools Week. Luckily for us, she started out in life as a management consultant so is brushing up on her rusty business skills! Learn more about Laura on her personal website.

Becky Allen – Chief Analyst

Becky spends her days developing questions and analytical routines for teachers and clients. Another former teacher, she has recently escaped from a 15-year career in academia, most recently as a Professor of Education at UCL Institute of Education. The things she learnt in her early twenties in investment banking are helping to ensure Teacher Tapp doesn’t run out of money! Learn more about Becky on her personal website.

Alex Weatherall – Chief Technology Officer

Alex is, technically, the one who really makes Teacher Tapp work each day. He builds our data infrastructure, our web interfaces and supports our app development (which has been done by our friends at Imactivate). He recently gave up his job as a secondary school physics and computing teacher to work on Teacher Tapp full-time. He learnt the art of manipulating computers and information as a software programmer at a telecoms company.
