Emily has lived in Deerfield since 1957. Her father, Howard Kane, was a Deerfield Library Trustee on its first board. Her first job, at 16, was as a Page at Deerfield Library. She got a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Drake University and was a trade magazine editor for 12 years. After volunteering in her son’s classroom many times, she went to graduate school to become a teacher at National Louis University, where she got three graduate degrees in reading and became a reading specialist. She taught first grade for 21 years at South Park, retiring last year. She has been substituting there when she can. She has a 35-year old son, Kevin, who got married last February 14th in California. She is also proud of the fact that her son was the Showcase Showdown Winner on a Price Is Right episode, and deciphered almost all the puzzles one night on Wheel of Fortune.
