Meet The Faculty
Darryl Einhorn joined the Culver Academies’ Humanities Department in 2011. She earned a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of California. Upon completion of her undergraduate studies, Darryl transferred her classroom learning into experiential application during a solo journey around the world the following year. Darryl immersed herself within the architecture of ancient history and the personal stories and experiences of many who had lived history; she heard countless stories about family struggles and the ultimate courage of individuals who survived the Cultural Revolution to rebuild their nation anew, hiked the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, watched the sunset on top of an ancient ruin at Tikal, explored Angkor Wat, My Son and the memorials of the Killing Fields, once again, hearing stories of fortitude and renewal in the face of history’s ongoing struggle with reconciliation of personal, national and global identities. Darryl returned from her travels ready to pursue a career path focused on issues of social justice.
She earned a juris doctor degree in law from University of Tulsa and subsequently worked as an attorney representing the rights of abused and neglected children and battered women for many years. Darryl returned to the academic world to earn a masters degree in history from the University of Chicago where her areas of interest included slavery, critical race theory and feminist theory. Additionally, Darryl earned a master’s degree in education from National Louis University. Darryl was a 2011 recipient of the Margot Stern Strom Facing History and Ourselves National Teaching Award, which recognized her commitment to addressing issues of social justice and equity through education. She currently teaches Global Perspectives, the 10th grade humanities course.
