My name is Em and I am a master educator and working artist. I have been thinking and writing about adult education for over twenty years and my first book, “Building a Trauma-Responsive Educational Practice: Lessons from a Corrections Classroom,” is now available to ship. I recently gave a talk for the Maggie Garb inaugural lecture series titled “Trauma, Incarceration, and Ability to Learn: Rediscovering Learning as Adults” that is a good introduction to the material in the book. I was also recently part of a panel on youth organizing (find it here), and was interviewed by The Learning Project Network.
As many of us are, I am taking time to reflect on the last year and a half and reorient, based on what I learn in that process. Thank you for your patience and I look forward to what comes next. You can find me on LinkedIn, my CV is below, and I’ll be restarting my Substack newsletter, where I will be expanding on topics from the book, as well as writing about reentry and education.
