Personal bio
Emily Schell is a doctoral candidate in the Developmental and Psychological Sciences program at the Graduate School of Education (GSE), under the guidance of Professor Amado Padilla. She received her double BA with honors in International Relations and East Asian Studies from Brown University in 2016 and MA in International Comparative Education from Stanford University in 2018. Prior to coming to Stanford, she was a Fulbright English Teacher in rural Taiwan. Emily's research seeks to understand how students from different cultural backgrounds make academic decisions, with the hope of helping universities create more culturally responsive advising frameworks for students from historically underrepresented backgrounds. Her work with immigrant communities spans over 13 years, starting with her foundation of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Promise for Preschool, to support Virginia Head Start programs. She continues to support immigrant students locally through her work as an advisor to DreamCatchers and as a Community Engaged Learning Fellow and National Advisory Board member to Stanford's Haas Center for Public Service. As a result of her "thoughtful dedication to students" and "contagious passion for service learning," she was awarded Stanford's highest teaching award, the Walter J. Gores award, in 2021.
