Mona Yoast

Vice President, Educator Success

Mona Yoast was appointed Vice President of Educator Success in November 2018. She works to ensure a customer success mindset drives everything we do across the organization, and translates this to student outcomes through her leadership of best in class Customer Care, Educator Success, and Professional Learning teams. Mona is a career educator with a passion for accelerating learning for children as well as adults. During her years in public education she taught Fourth Grade, Reading Recovery, and K-3 intervention. After achieving her Masters in Reading Education and Reading Specialist credentials she became a National Literacy Consultant helping educators across the country improve their literacy practices to get better outcomes for the students they serve.

She joined Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and served as Director of Consulting, Director of Program and Services Alignment, and Executive Director of the Leadership and Learning Center. In all of these roles the goal was to improve the implementation and professional learning services provided through growing high performing teams. She then moved to Renaissance Learning as Vice President, Professional Services. There she led their various professional services teams as well as helped to envision and create their first Customer Success team designed to ensure customers achieve the greatest value out of their software investment.

Mona combines all of these experiences on a mission to ensure every student that needs Learning Ally solutions not only gets access, but also has a knowledgeable educator that can leverage the tools to ensure students meet success.


We all have our personal stories and unique backgrounds that connect us to the organization and its mission. Different in many ways, yes, but everyone on the team is passionate about education and possesses a true desire to see students overcome their learning differences to succeed academically, and beyond.
