Founder of TrueSchool Studio
Amy Vreeland 2015 Fellow
Expand the innovation potential of frontline educators by partnering with schools, districts, and organizations to enable educators to redesign classrooms, schools, and systems.
Amy Vreeland is the founder and chief executive officer of TrueSchool Studio. Amy began her journey in education at a nonprofit start-up in Boulder, Colorado supporting first-generation students towards successful college graduation. She then transitioned to another start-up – this time to a new high school as an Algebra I teacher and Teach For America corps member in the unprecedented charter school movement in New Orleans. Amy next traveled to South Africa, where she advised young professionals and community members in the design of community-led, human-centered social enterprises. While living in this small, rural community, Amy was reminded constantly of her students and kept seeing the intersection of what she was doing with the needs and potential for her students in the U.S. Inspired by the possibility for bottom-up, grassroots innovation to engender truly student-centered schools, Amy left graduate school at Princeton University and returned to New Orleans to launch TrueSchool.
