United States of America - Fort Lauderdale

Hello! Emily Smith, here. School-based Speech-Language Pathologist by way of clinical background, and Education Specialist in Educational Leadership with an emphasis in Special Education. Now, I am the Founder & CEO of TeleTeachers, a quickly-scaling edtech startup.


As the Founder & CEO of TeleTeachers, I am fueled by advancing equity in education access for all students, no matter where learning happens.

I’ve had the pleasure of being an EdTech founder before the days of widespread adoption when pitching online learning to schools was similar to pushing a boulder up a hill. A school-based speech pathologist by trade & the daughter of a special education teacher/administrator, I’m at my best when I’m working shoulder-to-shoulder with school leaders to solve big problems and scale solutions that ensure every student has the services they need to learn and thrive.

Creating new, innovative partnerships within complex education systems and school cultures is a strength. Maximizing the talents of my team, cultivating a culture of inclusion and belonging, and bringing levity throughout the experience are my priorities.

I am committed to equity in education. To growing, learning and leading conversations that help ensure access to education for all students.
