Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 4th, we will be profiling every student participating in YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Muhand J, CEO of Substitute Teacher.
Education is a problem around the world – in the classrooms, there is not enough time being spent on learning. My name is Muhand, and I am a senior at Brooklyn International High School. In my experience, about 15 minutes of each class period is wasted with administrative tasks before academic lessons get started. Fifteen minutes a day adds up to 250+ hours a year of students not spending school time on learning. The good news is that technology is changing education. I have been a software developer for 7 years and a teacher with over 300,000 views on YouTube. My product, Substitute Teacher, gives students and teachers more time to focus on academic instruction. I have developed a facial recognition technology that enables teachers to get right down to teaching when the class period begins.
