10/11 Team- Human Ecology and Writing
Grown amongst the cornfields of the fertile Midwest, Emma is a Chicago native who is glad to have migrated west. Before finding Sage, Emma taught English at Collegiate School, an independent school in Richmond, Virginia. Her studies of American Literature and Environmental Studies at Middlebury College in Vermont had her birthing sheep, mapping bird habitat, and reading writers ranging from Ovid to DeLillo. Emma’s first experience teaching at a school in the Indian Himalayas inspired her passion for teaching and tall mountains. There, she realized the importance of cultural and ecological literacy. Somewhat afflicted with wanderlust, Emma has studied, traveled, or taught in many countries across the globe, from Mongolia to Micronesia. She is eager to share the solace of stories and written expression with the students of The Sage School. Emma likes to have her nose in a novel, her feet on a trail, and her mind working over some curious new question.
