A smiling person with short dark hair and reddish-pink shirt

My name is emareena and I am a master educator, originator of trauma-responsive adult education, author, and working artist. I have been an education practitioner and public scholar – thinking, and writing about adult education – for twenty five years.

My book, “Building a Trauma-Responsive Educational Practice: Lessons from a Corrections Classroom,” was published in January 2022. It is the first book to address the impacts of trauma on adult learning, offer approaches and strategies, and the first practical guide to teaching in prison.

Say hi to Galactica, the Galactic Cow, my latest project! If you’re interested in how teaching and learning as part of our growth as humans, this is the podcast for you ♥
