    Who's Behind It?

    Felix and Jordan

    Badge Books and Beanstack are both products of Zoobean, Inc.

    Zoobean was founded by Jordan, the first head of K-12 education at Google, and her husband Felix, who was previously named Washington, DC’s Teacher of the Year.

    After a feature on Shark Tank and an investment from Mark Cuban, Beanstack became the country’s premier reading challenge and tracker service. Last year, more than 2 million readers used it to boost their independent reading time
