Lauran Kerr-Heraly is an award-winning educator and author. She currently serves as a history professor and Innovation Fellow at Houston Community College. Her innovative teaching includes turning a classroom into an escape room, multidisciplinary projects showcasing personal food histories and environmental justice, and playing with experimental learning spaces. As an executive function coach, she works with teens and their parents too. She helps develop a holistic approach to school success, which includes a focus on essential skills, executive function, and emotional awareness. She uses gamification in her coaching to motivate and engage. She shares a nerdy and adventurous life with her husband and 10yo in Houston, where they play a lot of board games (the more complicated, the better).
