Hi! My name is Emily and I am proud to say that I am a 19-year veteran teacher and that I come from a long line of teachers, including my beloved grandmother Gertrude who was a 1st grade teacher for many years. I am blessed to have the opportunity to teach in the neighborhood school of where I grew up and live in now with my own family. I have also been blessed to have every one of my children attend this wonderful neighborhood school!
I love inspiring students to learn through exploration, creativity, and teamwork and am continuously inspired to create lessons that fit my teaching style. I truly believe that TPT is an avenue to help all of us fellow teachers share with and learn from each other.

I attended the University of Missouri for two years and then moved back to my hometown of Springfield, MO where I graduated in 1998 with my BS in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood and Music. In 2004 I graduated from Drury University with my Master's in Elementary Education.
I am a Christian, always a mother first to four amazing kids, a wife to the most amazing and supportive husband that anyone could ever have, and lucky enough to say a teacher to hundreds of kids throughout the past 19 years!
