Dalinda Alcantar, Founder and CEO
We are super proud to say that we began in a classroom with a teacher down South in McAllen, TX. Mrs. Dalinda Gonzalez-Alcantar, our founder, was serving as an AVID coordinator and Art teacher in a school where the demographic consists mainly of Hispanics with low socioeconomic status. She had a very difficult time communicating with her parents and students about great things that were happening on campus like student performances, athletic events, PTA meetings, and cool workshops for family engagement because her parents or students didn’t go home to the internet. She learned to create a mobile application for her school and thus began the eJucomm project. Her mobile applications are now being created across the nation to impact families throughout the country including those that live a modern mobile lifestyle!
