This is quite different than what you would normally expect to see from a premium WordPress themes company.
Announced today by Cory Miller, co-founder of iThemes, that iThemes is hiring a Director of Education. This is not your typical director of education role though, as it pertains to educating and helping schools use the iThemes products. Something to remember is that iThemes also owns the WebDesign.com product and service.
This week I’m pleased to announce our new Education Director, Lindsey Miller, to the iThemes team and community. Lindsey previously was the executive director of The Div, Inc., the nonprofit tech foundation we helped start last year.
In this new role, Lindsey will be working directly with educators, administrators and students to expand and enhance our Education Program. She’ll be setting up phone calls and informational webinars to help introduce educators to the program, as well as blogging and tweeting and attending education tradeshows and conferences, among others things.
It’s great to see a WordPress themes company making strides in the educational space, as it’s not seen very often. iThemes is doing their part to help educational organizations find ways to cut costs, be more efficient, and become more self-reliant.
