“The principle of self-determination is essential to our community realizing that we are enough - we’re the ones we’ve been waiting for. Only we can heal our community to ensure our youth thrive from cradle through career!”
Lindsey Fuller (she/her) is an unapologetic and passionate advocate for scholars and marginalized communities. She currently serves as the Interim Executive Director of The Teaching Well (TTW). Prior to joining TTW and after serving as both a teacher and school administrator, she served as the Regional Director of Student Services for Aspire Public Schools. In that role, she supported 11 Bay Area schools and led all non-academic initiatives, including mental health programming, behavioral supports, socio-emotional learning, and crisis management. Lindsey was the co-founder and leader of Aspire’s first affinity group in 2016, which has now scaled to nearly 20 affinity spaces across the organization. She also co-founded the inaugural Black Leadership Advocacy Council (B.L.A.C.), endeavoring to amplify the voices of Black stakeholders to improve outcomes for Black scholars.
Outside of her primary role, Lindsey engages in consulting work via Fuller Freedom Consulting (FFC) to bring engaging professional development, executive coaching, and strategic planning/systems consultation to a host of CMOs and school districts. She holds a B.A., California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and Masters in Teaching (M.A.T.) from Occidental College, her California Preliminary Administrative Credential, as well as licensure in Restorative Practices (IIRP).
Lindsey is a native of the Oakland/Berkeley community and a child of two educators. She is a values-driven, service leader who centers integrity, loyalty, and a relentless focus on creating the enabling conditions for educators to serve the whole child. Lindsey believes deeply in the principles of collective liberation and trauma-sensitive continuity of care. Through human-centered, anti-racist systems, strong climate, rigorous instruction, and culturally responsive practices, schools and families can work collaboratively to wrap around our youth. As a “Panther Cub,” she fights with the strength of her ancestors behind her for the liberation of her own children and young people everywhere.
