Emily R Gasoi
I have gained experience in my twenty-year career in education as a classroom teacher, adjunct professor, new teacher mentor, researcher and writer. A classroom teacher for nearly a decade, I taught grades 2, 3 and 4 in both private and public school settings. Beginning in 1997, I worked with MacArthur award winning educator and author, Deborah Meier, to found the now internationally recognized Mission Hill School in Boston. After leaving Mission Hill School in 2004,I earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently co-authoring a book with Ms. Meier about the history and future of progressive education.
