A Chicago native and graduate of the Lab School, Emily began teaching in the South Bronx at PS 18 over a decade ago. She rose to ever more senior roles in the KIPP network, serving as the founding principal of a KIPP elementary school in Brooklyn. From 2016 to 2019 she led the instructional support team at New Classrooms, a personalized learning company focused on middle school math.

Emily, her husband, and their son live in Clinton Hill. Based at 55 Willoughby, she oversees Kindergarten and First Grade, and will take responsibility for 2nd to 4th grade as ICS expands in the years to come. She will also oversee the strengthening of our school culture across both buildings.
