Kids first, every time.

Our scholars bring more than backpacks and pencils with them to school each day. Transformative education begins with understanding the impact of trauma on our scholars' learning. Ed offers professional development opportunities to build trauma-informed competencies among any staff that works with children and adolescents.


News, discussion and articles about education-related topics, including trauma-informed schools, community violence, family engagement, and the intersection of policy and education in under-resourced communities.

Oh, and stories. Lots of stories.

Working for justice.


Holding the stories my scholars tell me is an honor and a gift I may never be able to repay. Because you, as a student, have invested your trust in me, I'm here to see your journey through to college and beyond, even if we don't see each other at the same school any more.

All my scholars have a standing invitation to check-in any time and stay in touch.

For my scholars.
