Emily Pressman has been on the faculty at St. Andrew's School in Middletown, Delaware for sixteen years; currently, she serves as Chair of the History Department, Dean of Honor, III Form dorm parent, and Dean of Faculty Development. She received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in History from Yale University, with a focus on race, slavery, and civil rights in American history. Attending the Klingenstein Summer Institute in 2004 remains her most powerful and formative professional development experience, and she is thrilled to have the chance to return to KSI this summer (and all the more so now that it is at Hotchkiss, where she grew up). Emily is servant to a perpetually overly-exuberant hound dog, Ruthie; in her free time, she enjoys baking, reading, travel, tracking down quirky historical monuments, and going to the theater any chance she gets.
