My name is Emily and I recently graduated from Elon University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education! I am passionate about social justice education and empowering all students to succeed by incorporating my top three values of equity, collaboration, and growth into my teaching and my classroom.
My favorite teaching experiences have been at Title I schools in K-3 classrooms, and I especially love working with ELLs both within the ESL and the general classroom. Many of these experiences are featured on the Internships page as well as throughout my blog posts.
I look forward to calling a class my own in the near future as I begin my first year of teaching!
My Personal Teaching Philosophy
Teaching is the creation of a community of learners with students who celebrate their diversity and actively engage in the world around them through integrative, culturally relevant, and developmentally-appropriate lessons. As a teacher, I have the privilege of facilitating the necessary relationship building, conversations, and instruction to create a positive, empowering, and equitable learning environment that meets the needs of all of my students.
