Emily Battaglia

Director of Community Engagement

Education is my purpose, and I have been lucky to have 25+ years of experience in the secondary, post-secondary, graduate, and professional education fields. Creating impactful educational experiences is a passion I have pursued throughout my career as a high school history teacher, training manager, curriculum director, instructional/learning experience designer, game writer/producer, and educational program director. I continue to strive for learner advocacy and equal access to education, and I strive to create meaningful learning experiences for all students in any role I have.

I’m so thrilled to be taking on the role as Director of Community Engagement as it is a natural extension of the work I have been doing behind the scenes for Presidio for years. I look forward to getting to know each Presidian and seeing how I can foster meaning, connection, and inspiration within our amazing community. Please seek me out for all things related to events, residencies, student and career services, and alumni and community engagement.

I graduated from California State University, Chico with a BA in Social Science and earned my Single Subject Teaching Credential with B-Clad Certification from Dominican University of California. When I’m not reading anything I can get my hands on or revising my novel (for the hundredth time), I am camping, hiking, and enjoying the outdoors whenever possible.
