Rebecca Reed

On this week's episode, we're digging into the entrepreneurial journey of Amanda DoAmaral, a former AP History teacher and recent recipient of Business Insider's 8 Women Under 30 Entrepreneurs & CEOs to Watch list. A few years ago Amanda left her high school classroom and created Fiveable, a social learning platform that connects students and teachers for in-depth group learning through livestreamed lessons, interactive discussions, and engaging communities. What started as a way to help her former students prepare for their AP exam exploded into a community of more than 35,000 students in a little over two years time. Amanda shares the unexpected pathway that "expanded the walls" of her classroom, and how Fiveable is creating new opportunities for students and for teachers.
