Kris has been the lead programmer for Voces Digital since 2010 when Skip McWilliams, the owner of Teacher's Discovery, dropped an Exploratory Spanish textbook on his desk and asked him to "put this online." More than a traditional programmer, Kris does not just build the tools in Voces: He works closely with teachers and students to find out what tools they really need to improve the World Language classroom.
As the lead content developer, Erin works closely with language teachers, native speakers, and other creative people around the world to develop the Voces curricula. When not working on content development, you may find her at a conference or talking with a teacher who uses Voces. With a background in English, creative writing, and cultural anthropology, as well as experience teaching at all levels, Erin is able to orchestrate projects, connect people, and communicate clearly to achieve new, cool things.

Chuck is our marketing and graphics guy. You've probably received a few of his fancy emails, seen his posts on Facebook, or even seen his designs at the conferences. He got his start by designing presentations for college professors, and has since grown and expanded his marketing and design tools to help bring Voces to more teachers and schools all over the world.
