According to its founder, John Soleanicov, Teach For Romania may never have launched had he known in advance all of the challenges he would face. In his recent TEDxEroiler talk, John explains how this naiveté about starting an NGO with a mission to place outstanding graduates in high-need schools and communities in Romania was in many ways his greatest asset in realizing his vision. Today, thanks to what John “didn’t know he didn’t know,” Teach For Romania’s second cohort of teachers will soon join its first in helping hundreds of Romanian children to achieve their potential and fulfill their dreams.
