Our Teams

The Educator Enablement Team is FirstByte’s primary point of contact with our audience. Members on this team work directly with teachers and facilitate the loaner program. They also network with schools, educators, parents, and organizations to implement technology curricula and identify the community’s unaddressed needs.
