Emily tells us in her teaching philosophy that, "My own experience as an undergraduate studying art history shaped my goals for teaching. Art history transformed my awareness of racism, sexism, and colonialism, revealing how these injustices remain embedded in our visual culture and the ways that artists and makers have critiqued social issues. Teaching is a way to pass this transformative experience on to my students and to equip them to not only become visually literate, but to employ their visual literacy toward ethical commitments to inclusivity and justice." Her syllabi consistently reflect these goals, with inventive and technologically innovative assignments.

Emily has completed temple's Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education.
