Ms. Yee-Ann Cho is a Senior Program Officer for Education at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, where she is responsible for leading the foundation’s efforts to replicate successful school models across the country. As such, she manages a portfolio of over $100 million focused on improving high schools. Prior to joining the foundation, Yee-Ann was the Managing Director for Consulting Services at New American Schools, a national nonprofit education reform organization headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia. The impetus for entering the world of high school reform came from her three years of experience at Eagle Rock School in Estes Park, Colorado, a small, alternative, year-round, residential high school that was founded and is fully funded by the American Honda Motor Company. She began her career in international education and exchange programs at the US-Asia Institute and the Academy for Educational Development in Washington, D.C. Yee-Ann earned her BA in International Relations from Colgate University, and EdM in Education Policy and Evaluation from Stanford University’s School of Education, and her MBA from Yale University’s School of Management.
