The What School Could Be Podcast
101. My Daughter, My Teacher, My Friend, Emma Reppun
The very well traveled educator, Emma Reppun was raised between the hills of Marin County, California and the Koʻolau Mountains of O'ahu, in Hawai'i. In college she studied sociology at UC Santa Barbara where she received the first inkling that teaching would be her life’s work. In the following years she was trained in the ways of Forest School and Nature Connection by her mentors at Vilda and Earthwise Education, and became a Wilderness First Responder through the National Outdoor Leadership School, or NOLS. During that time she discovered a deep love for working with early-childhood aged children and decided to pursue a graduate degree in education, through the Bay Area Teacher Training Institute, which she completed in 2021. Editing for this episode is provided by the talented Evan Kurohara. Our theme music comes from the vast catalogue of music by master pianist, Michael Sloan.
