A way of seeing is also a way of not seeing

Emery Petchauer, Ed.D.

I am an educator, scholar, and organizer who enjoys connecting assets and resources to create something new. I believe that growth happens by recognizing and leveraging the assets that exist in the networks around us. My approach to teaching, learning, and community organizing is shaped by a diverse set of experiences: as a high school teacher, teacher educator, education scholar, and urban arts creator.

Professional Background: I am an educator and scholar who has worked in a range of diverse settings across the United States and abroad. With over a decade of experience alongside teachers and school leaders, my goal is to help people become more effective and justice-oriented in their practice. I hold a doctoral degree in Higher Education from Regent University in addition to a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Teaching, both from Wheaton College. In addition to work in education settings, I also have over 15 years of experience working with community members to establish and sustain urban arts spaces across the country.
