Welcome. My name is Em and I am a master educator and working artist. I have been thinking and writing about adult education for almost twenty years and my first book, “Building a Trauma-Responsive Educational Practice: Lessons from a Corrections Classroom,” will drop in early 2022. I co-created the Trauma-Responsive Educational framework, and created the Expansive Learning model. Developing a strong, expansive ability to learn is necessary, and includes joy and imagination, especially for adult learners.
