Bio: Emily has six years of experience working with K-12 and undergraduate students on their writing and study skills and four years of experience working in communications for nonprofits and publications. She was also the curriculum designer for lean, Chicago-based edtech startup PinkThink and helped create educational STEM games and products for pre-teen girls.
High School: Palo Alto Senior High School in Palo Alto, CA
College: Carleton College, B.A. in English
Grad School: University of Chicago, M.A. in Humanities with an emphasis in English and curriculum design
Favorite Teacher: Emily has had so many favorite teachers over the years, and so it’s hard for her to choose just one to highlight. Probably one of her most influential educators was Professor Susan Jaret McKinstry at Carleton, who first introduced her to the creativity behind crafting a critical argument and the world of literary theory.
