Sunanna Chand

Vice President, Reinvention
The Reinvention Lab, powered by Teach For America

At the Reinvention Lab, Sunanna is helping to co-create and lead is an exploratory space within Teach For America where we think about the future of learning and the future of the organization. Together with young people, parents and caregivers, leaders and educators both in and outside of Teach For America, we pursue equitable innovation and system-level transformation. Our motto, inspired by Grace Lee Boggs, is to “transform ourselves to radically transform learning,” which speaks to both our focus on radical systems transformation in education as well as our need to acknowledge the history and harm of Teach For America and investigate our own practices in order to move forward as an organization.

Prior to the Reinvention Lab, Sunanna was Director of Remake Learning in Pittsburgh, PA, a diverse network of 600+ schools, museums, libraries, government, philanthropies and more, all thinking about how to create engaging, relevant, and equitable learning experiences for young folks.
