Evan St. Lifer serves as a Senior Advisor to nascent and early-stage Edtech companies as well as companies devoted to the social/emotional growth and well-being of children and families. Evan met Lisa and edWeb during his 15-year tenure at Scholastic, where he held leadership positions in a variety of capacities, developing businesses and products serving a range of markets including Early Childhood, PreK-12, After School, Family Engagement, Summer Learning, and Libraries. He and edWeb share many areas of mutual interest, including delivering for teachers more fluid, intuitive, and powerful ways to collaborate and share best practices, 24-7. Which is why he’s committed to turbocharging teacher learning communities. Evan and Lisa have both recently joined the Advisory Council for the ERDI Alliance for Education Impact.
He most recently helped launched the Florida Technology Foundation, the non-profit and educational off-shoot of the Florida Technology Council—which focuses on the needs and priorities of the state’s technology sector and advises the state legislature on information technology policy. Before his career at Scholastic, Evan was a journalist for nearly two decades, which included investigative reporting for The New York Times and culminating in a five-year stint as Editor-in-Chief of School Library Journal.
