Emily Souther

Emily’s teaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that children are born excited to learn. As adults we must nurture this excitement and do everything in our power not to snuff it out. Emily has found her life’s calling building relationships with young people, listening to their passions, and developing responsive curriculum to nurture self-confidence, happiness, and agency.

Emily earned her multiple subject teaching credential in California at the Bay Area Teacher Training Institute, a masters of curriculum and instructor from University of the Pacific, and earned her BA with honors in Anthroplogy from UC Santa Cruz. Emily has taught at grade levels K-5.
