Emily Glankler

Teacher
Griffin School

Emily Glankler is a history teacher and podcaster who believes that most of the world’s problems could be solved with a thorough social studies education. She has eight years of experience disrupting the traditional classroom by introducing contemporary issues and productive discussion to the school-wide curriculum; developing meaningful lessons that go past dates and names and help kids build critical context for the world they live in; and creating educational materials, including her podcast "Anti-Social Studies," that are accessible to both young people and the young at heart who wish they had paid more attention in history class.
