Research shows that by 2020, 1 in every 4 students in the US will be an English Learner (EL). Nearpod recently launched Nearpod EL, a brand-new product line offering the tools & resources teachers need to support ELs.

We are looking for an EL K-12 Sales Solution Specialist who will help bring our comprehensive solution to districts all over the country.
