learning to embody today
the future we want tomorrow
"[P]racticing futures together, practicing justice together, living into new stories. It is our right and responsibility to create a new world."
-adrienne maree brown, Emergent Strategy
Hi, I'm Dana!
I know the struggle.
I know the restrictions, the turn-over, the lack of resources. The ever-shifting demands, the politics, the chaotic classrooms. I also know that this old model of education doesn’t work; it doesn't lead to genuine learning, support students’ needs, or connect to the real world.
Educate Regenerate is transforming the face of education.
I am committed to building a future in which today's children become knowledgeable, healthy, and proactive citizens of Earth. I work to build communities that are prepared with the knowledge, skills, resources and perspectives to make a real change in the world.
I'm an educator, gardener, & systems designer.
I've taught in forests, prisons, barns, living rooms, community gardens, and just about everywhere in between. And there's been some classrooms in there, too, of every size and shape imaginable.
At Educate Regenerate, I work at the intersection of Global Citizenship, Nature Connection , and Social-Emotional Learning. I integrate learning approaches that serve immediate needs while preparing students to succeed in a world of their own making.
I value learning that empowers, restores, liberates, and transforms. I promote strategies that serve students, educators, their local community, and the Earth. And I recognize that learning is inherently political, and actively engage in the necessary inner and outer work to promote justice.
