Emily is a writer, educator, and editor who has edited and designed interdisciplinary curricula in both non-profit and corporate settings. She’s spent years in community college composition and literature classrooms, where her courses centered around issues of social justice, psychology and decision-making, and critical thinking. She’s also served as the ELA instructor in professional development institutes for K-12 science teachers, with a focus on climate change.
Eva Kaye-Zwiebel is a social scientist and project manager and the co-founder of Small Stones.
