Wendy Kopp, CEO and Co-Founder of Teach For All and Founder of Teach For America

“The most valuable piece of advice I’ve received was from Ari Rosman, the former CEO of The New Teacher Project. I have four amazing kids, but also travel extensively. When I was feeling especially stressed about the time apart, Ari shared that her father had traveled often, but brought her on a special trip each year that she treasured. I’ve come to see that as many downsides as intense jobs have for moms, they also have real upsides. I’ve been able to bring my work and passion to my kids to increase their awareness and understanding, and I’ve been able to expose them to the world. My kids have traveled everywhere from rural America to rural China, and these visits have transformed their understanding of the world, their ideas of what they want to do with their lives, and even our relationships with each other.”
