Emily Durr

Associate Teacher, Kindergarten, Lower School

BA Scripps College


Emily is excited to join the Trinity community after graduating from Scripps College with a BA in politics and a minor in Middle Eastern and North African studies. While at Scripps, she served as president of an English language development program that focused heavily on the educational and linguistic transition of refugee children through tutoring mentorships. Emily was also active in student organizing spaces, spearheading political education workshops, lectures, and community building exercises that centered on a range of advocacy issues. Her educational practice and beliefs are rooted in the words and teachings of bell hooks. Building from hooks’ pedagogy, Emily is excited to contribute and grow in the joy, community, care, love, and inclusivity that is built and nurtured in learning spaces.
