About Mike

With a love and passion for education and innovation, Mike Teng is the CEO and Co-founder of Swing Education, a tech-enabled marketplace that connects substitute teachers with a school in need. Swing has helped over 2,500 schools, and over 5 million students find qualified educators to fill teacher and support staff absences since 2015. Recently, Mike debuted Bubbles,  a service that lets parents create small in-home “learning pods” where kids can participate in their distance learning assignments with the help of an in-person teacher. With so many parents relying on schools for not only education but childcare as well, Bubbles can bridge the gap for busy parents. Mike will be sharing insight, knowledge, and advice about balancing distance learning with in-person experiences with us this Tuesday, to help you prep and gain clarity going into the new school year.
