ANDREA WEISS — is passionate about helping others grow and cultivating cultural awareness.

Andrea has been working with the Foundation for Teaching Economics since 2008, and loves witnessing the growth of students at our programs. Andrea loves traveling, board gaming, hiking, cycling and camping with her husband, and she hopes that her new baby girl will love the outdoors as much as her parents!
