In this episode Eric interviews Emily Leary Chesney from the American Psychological Association in Washington, DC. Within the Education Directorate, Emily is the Associate Director of the Office of Pre-College and Undergraduate Education. She is the staff liaison to Teachers of Psychology in Secondary Schools, or, the TOPSS Committee. She discusses her dedication and passion for working on behalf of high school teachers of psychology in numerous forms. Working at APA and the pandemic has brought about change, but the silver lining has been more work flexibility for now. Emily shares some of the details of her undergraduate past, having been a psychology major at Furman University and having taken three courses from Charles Brewer (with fond memories).
