George Lucas Educational Foundation

Annie O’Shaughnessy

Community College Teacher

Educator, consultant, speaker, and writer. I believe human beings need to experience safety, respect, belonging, and voice in order to learn, grow, and have the capacity to admit to and repair harm. Years of classroom experience, along with advanced study in mindfulness, trauma-sensitive practices, equity, and restorative practices support me in my quest to help create these conditions in classrooms and schools.

Community college teacher, and community facilitator for Edutopia. Formerly a school leader at a small alternative therapeutic high school near Burlington, Vermont.
