After cutting my teeth in political campaigns, I have pursued a career in education. I earned a master's degree in education leadership and transitioned to advocacy and public affairs work in the field of education. This work has included organizing high profile events, social media campaigns and websites to support STEM education and new education policies. I have also worked with a variety of organizations to award teacher grants, student scholarships and have been a frequent participant on education committees and workgroups with the Minnesota Department of Education, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU), University of Minnesota and the National Governors Association.
I'm the Founder and co-creator of Sophia and I love to create new things. I have a deep passion for education and technology, and I spend a lot of time thinking about how they could come together more effectively. I earned my bachelor's degree in U.S. History from the University of Wisconsin and my MBA from the University of Minnesota. I'm also the proud father of three daughters who give me a lot of great feedback on how to improve Sophia. I hope you'll send me your thoughts and ideas about Sophia. You can also feel free to share your thoughts on education, technology, American history (my personal passions are presidential and immigration history), music, songwriting, or baseball. I’d love to hear from you. - Don

Hey everyone! I am Amanda and I am a biology content author and learning coach for Sophia. I have developed content for the middle and high school pathways as well as for the human biology college credit course. I absolutely love working with such a great company! I graduated from St. Cloud State University in 2007 with a degree in Secondary Science Education. Prior to graduation I lived in Costa Rica for the summer doing research on dolphins! I taught middle school science for a few years after graduation and then took my teaching expertise to China to teach English for six months. After my arrival home from China I began working with Sophia in the fall of 2011. I enjoy all things science related especially environmental sciences and genetics. In my free time I love traveling! I also enjoy being outdoors, reading and spending time with family and friends. Life is good :)

Hey I am Pooja. I work as Online Marketing Executive in Prismic Reflections a Web App UI Design Agency in Mumbai. My role is to get quality traffic for our clients. Usually I spend time on creating strategies.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S in Chemistry and Mathematics along with an education certification. My career began in Utah teaching junior high math and high school chemistry. I spent 22 years in the classroom as a science teacher in the Rosemount, Apple Valley, Eagan School District. I have taught physics, AP, honors, general and concept level Chemistry. Currently, I am a Professional Development Specialist working in the School of Education at Capella University. During the summer, I facilitate week long workshops for new and experienced chemistry teachers at Hamline University with Prof. Matt Morgan. As a team, we cover content as well as current best practices in the science classroom including inquiry and digital resources. I am also employed by the College Board as an AP Chemistry Consultant where I facilitate day-long to week-long workshops for classroom teachers. I believe one of the best ways to improve my professional practice is to network with teachers from all over the country and I enjoy the opportunities this provides.
