Signy Emler

Signy Emler teaches social studies at Lindenhurst High School in Lindenhurst, New York on the south shore of Long Island. Signy introduced a service learning initiative, led professional development workshops on implementing Socratic seminars and literacy across the curriculum, and introduced the Understanding by Design curriculum development to her social studies department. Signy has also initiated a district pilot study on the impact of mindfulness and attention training on adolescents and teachers and started a student-based writing center. She wants to become the kind of school leader that inspires great teaching and can create a school that allows all adults and children to realize their academic and human potential.
