Emily has been teaching for over 15 years and is always on a quest to be a better teacher. She loves reading, especially all things related to education...and traveling…and cooking…and parenting…and…well just about anything. Her happy place is the beach or really anywhere that she can see water, and she enjoys playing tennis and going to concerts. Although she lives in the south and rarely gets them, she is a huge fan of snow days. In her free time she can be found making slime with her daughter, playing guitar hero with her son, and binge watching Netflix with her husband.
