“I had the privilege of working with Emily when she lived in Utah. We were co-teachers for Davis School District’s Headstart Program for almost 4 years. She has a genuine love for the kiddos she teaches and provides a nurturing environment that allows and encourages children to learn and grow in a safe, comfortable, and developmentally appropriate environment.
Learning through play is one of Emily’s strengths, the kiddos often times are learning and not even realizing that they are because they are having so much fun in the process. Her classroom is filled with hands on learning experiences. The activities are purposeful to create an environment that encourages social experiences through play and discovery and always age appropriate.
The kiddos in her class are encouraged to make friends, communicate with classmates and establish and build positive relationships all while developing literacy and math skills.
Communication is important to Emily. Emily knows that working as a team with her kiddos families is vital to each child’s success. She lets parents know what is happening in her classroom, she shares what she observes and shares the progress of each child. She encourages families to connect learning at school in the home environment and is always willing to foster the learning that is happening at home within the classroom.
Emily is the teacher I would want for my own grandchildren!!!!”
