Our Story

Chalk is here because of teachers. What started out as William Zhou’s (CEO) quest to help his own teachers save time on their administrative tasks turned into a mission for improving education as a whole. He spent years studying the industry to create a solution that served teachers. His dream became Chalk. This has grown into Chalk’s vision of bringing personalized education to every student.
