Outschool welcomes Jennifer Wynn to our Board of Directors

Outschool Announcements Jun 22, 2022

When your purpose is big and bold, having the right partners is critical. To set learning free, you need movers and shakers who understand the intricacies of education. You need people who know what it takes to be an effective teacher and can strategize on a global scale.

Jennifer Wynn is that person, which is why Outschool is thrilled to welcome her to our Board of Directors. Jenn brings an incredible wealth of experience to her role.

  • She is the former Director of Education at the Obama Foundation. There, she led a team that designed community leadership and active citizenship programs across the U.S.
  • Jenn is also a celebrated professor at NYU, where she teaches effective communication for leadership and change management.
  • She served as a founding member of McKinsey Academy, where she trained executives globally.
  • Jenn also has extensive education experience as a leader and founding teacher of a middle school.
  • She was also the Director of Curriculum Management for an extensive charter school network.

Everyone at Outschool is grateful to have Jenn’s rich education experience and unique perspective. Here’s how she described what drew her to Outschool.

Joining Outschool’s board was an easy decision for me, as we have a true alignment of values. From the outset, the company’s primary mission has been to foster a love of learning, and I truly believe they are poised to transform education…Their combination of individualized learning and community building is what will be needed to foster the next generation of talent and leaders.

This drive to take learning to the next level is why we need people like Jenn. Co-founder and Head of Outschool Amir Nathoo described her as “such a natural fit for us.” He said:

She brings an educator’s perspective and understands the importance of bridge-building to achieve change. She is a visionary who sees how traditional ways of doing things in education may not be serving today’s learners.

Jenn understands the power of learning experiences outside your zip code. She knows that fast change driven by globalization and technology means we will need a much more personalized version of education to foster curiosity, cultivate connections and celebrate individuality.

We believe learning can be limitless – that it can open up kids' imaginations. Our goal is to help give children a world of endless learning possibilities. Thank you to Jennifer Wynn and all our other board members and supporters who are helping make that happen.
