Sam Kohl

Founder and Ceo
Denver, CO
Samis an English teacher turned entrepreneur who knew there had to be a better way to find literature that was relevant to her students. Most recently, she taught in Aurora Public Schools, the most diverse district in Colorado. Given this context, one of the most pressing challenges she faced was finding books that reflected the rich diversity of her students.

As a result, Sam founded Novela -- a search tool that aims to help teachers build diverse and inclusive classroom libraries. She is dedicated to ensuring all students have access to literature that exposes them to many different narratives and allows them to imagine infinite possibilities for themselves.

Sam also works in Sales and Marketing at Schoolrunner, a school management platform that connects teachers and administrators with the data they need to positively impact student achievement.
