Hello Everyone!

This is Mike Soldan, COO at Shmoop! I obsess over making edtech tools as effective as possible for both students and educators! I’m excited we now have a place to bring Shmoop educators together!


HI! My name is Taylor Johnson. I love technology and love how it is changing the lives of students across the globe. I help Shmoop prospects and customers realize how powerful our products and services can be across their schools and districts. Oh and… I love Mtn. Dew! Cheers!

Hi everyone, Tara Patterson here! I’m the Content Manager for Learning Sciences at Shmoop and I’m passionate about ensuring all of our content meets necessary learning objectives to help you and your students get the most from our products.

In addition to working for Shmoop, I’m also getting my master’s degree in Smart EdTech, Co-Creativity, and Digital Tools for Educational Innovation through a remote program with Université Côte d’Azur in Nice, France—if only my day-to-day life were as glamorous as that sounds :star_struck:

(Also, waffles for hotel breakfasts, pancakes the rest of the time :waffle:)

Hello Shmoopers!

I am the Director of Early College High School for South San Antonio ISD.

I was introduced to Shmoop by a colleague within the district and the software has allowed me to apply it to a tutoring program for TSIA 2.0.

I host tutoring after school on Tuesday and Thursday.
