Andrea Pasinetti

In 2008, during a year of study at Tsinghua University’s Inter-University Program, Andrea traveled to seven provinces in an effort to understand the contours of educational inequity in China. During his travels he spent time in more than 300 schools, talking to students, teachers, principals and education officials. Moved by the magnitude of the problem, Andrea founded Teach For China to aid in China's ongoing effort to bring quality educational resources to all children, irrespective of where they are born. After recruiting launching the organization in February 2008 Andrea recruited Hu Tingting and Rachel Wasser as members of Teach For China's founding team.

Andrea studied at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, where he focused on education in Chinese rural reform policies and the New Socialist Countryside Campaign. As an undergraduate, Andrea served as a director of Princeton University's Interact Program, engaging his peers in an effort to afford underprivileged high-school students in the Trenton City area a quality education.

In 2011 Andrea was recognized as the most influential foreign citizen residing in China by China Newsweek Magazine.
