Meet the Team
We owe all of our enormous success at Teacher Tapp to our brilliant team. Bringing together expertise in education, technology and data analysis we are a small but skilled team who operate as a well-oiled machine. That’s how we’re able to survey over 8,000 teachers a day!
Alex worked as a database developer for 9 years before training to become a Physics Teacher in 2010.
He co-founded Teacher Tapp in 2017, while still teaching. After too many post-period-5 bug fixing sessions he decide to work on Teacher Tapp full-time and has been doing so ever since.
My Favourite Teacher Tapp Finding: Teacher Tapp data constantly reveals the heterogeneous nature of the English school system. Even for us, it’s a constant eye-opener how different schools can be.
Karen is an education researcher and has worked for NFER, CfBT, and the BBC amongst others.
She is fascinated by education and in her spare time is a Trustee at education charity Parentkind, a school governor and a lay member of her local school appeals panel. She is also a mum to two ‘Mini-piesers’.
Shamaila has held a wide range of roles supporting students in school from behind the scenes.
Having worked across the spectrum of Primary, Secondary and SEN schools for 6 years in East London, Shamaila now works full time with Teacher Tapp, managing Client and Customer relations.
My Favourite Teacher Tapp Finding: I’m always particularly interested by our findings on teacher anxiety and wellbeing and how this changes at different times of year.
Samantha has worked with many large retailers developing their customer service and business to business functions.
She progressed into a franchising business model, confirming her passion for account management. Looking for an opportunity within the educational world, Samantha joined the team in July 2019.
My Favourite Teacher Tapp Finding: It’s fascinating to find out teachers’ attitudes towards issues like Brexit. It’s also interesting who teachers plan to vote for and actually end up voting for!
Nick started out completing a Physics PhD. While blasting polymer cells with laser beams, he developed a love for coding.
He then designed scientific measurement equipment and analytical software for use in renewable energy research. With a broad bank of technology skills, he joined Teacher Tapp in February 2020.
My Favourite Teacher Tapp Finding: Nearly half of all teachers have technology fail them on any given day! It’s a real problem as schools become more reliant on technology.
Humayraa Mulla - React Developer
Humayraa took up coding as a hobby before deciding to make the move into a career in tech.
She studied software development at a coding bootcamp and joined the Teacher Tapp team in October 2020.
My Favourite Teacher Tapp Finding: The fact that teachers anticipate pupil behaviour to worsen at different months of the year as well as in different weather conditions is really interesting.
Harry Langley - Junior Developer
Harry’s first interaction with programming was at age 14 when he made command line quizzes for GCSE.
At 18, he joined Teacher Tapp, relishing the opportunity to learn on the job (especially in lockdown), and he “hasn’t looked back since!”
My Favourite Teacher Tapp Finding: More than 10% of teachers don’t use digital software to present to their classes… I find it hard to imagine a class without a PowerPoint!
