Welcome Rebecca, Teela, and Katy to Crick Software!

November 29, 2023

It’s been a busy start to the academic year, and we are delighted to introduce some fantastic new members to our US and UK teams!

Rebecca Coldwell


I am thrilled to join the Crick Software team as the new US Customer Experience & Marketing Consultant! I majored in Environmental Studies at Bucknell University and later went on to receive a Master’s degree in Childhood Education. After 10 years of teaching grades 1-5, I decided that I wanted to push myself further in my career by joining the EdTech industry. I became an Education Consultant for Promethean World, and I can’t wait to expand my customer experience and marketing skills even more with Crick!

My other passions include anything to do with animals, nature, friends, and family. I have three young nieces who I adore, and I live in a wonderful town in Connecticut with my fiancé and our black and white goldendoodle, Bessie. Our favorite routine on the weekend is to go to town to get coffee and a pup cup, walk with Bessie up and down Main Street, and end with some fun at the dog park.

Teela Boyd-Carpenter


Before joining Crick Software, I was an elementary school teacher. While in the classroom, I taught across all grade levels. I was also the Head of Art and Design & Technology, which enabled me to embrace my creative side and share my passion across the school. I am delighted to be joining the Crick team as their Customer Engagement Team Leader, as I knew that when I stepped out of the classroom, I still wanted a role that makes an impact in education.

When I am not working, I enjoy going for weekend walks, going to the gym, and open water swimming. I also love to try out new recipes, dive into a new book, and spend time with my friends, my family, and my dog!

Katy Preston


I’m excited to be the latest addition to Crick’s UK Customer Experience team. Before joining Crick Software, I was an elementary school teacher - I taught across all grade levels, leading History, Science, and Geography. After devoting many years to this profession, I wanted a new adventure, but one where I could still make a difference. Luckily, I found Crick! I am thrilled to have moved to a job where I can implement my teaching expertise, helping schools to support and empower their learners through Clicker and DocsPlus.

In my spare time, I like to keep active. I run regularly, often completing charity 5km or 10km races. I also enjoy baking and visiting National Trust properties to satisfy my love of history.

We’re thrilled to welcome Rebecca, Teela, and Katy and are excited by all the wonderful ideas they have for supporting the Crick Software community!
