Emily Tabb, Sprouts Teacher

My name is Mrs. Emily and I’m a Sprouts Teacher.  I have my BA in Education from Transylvania University. I’ve worked with children inside and outside of the classroom for over 15 years. I am passionate about hands-on learning, free play, social emotional development, and art in preschool. I just love watching children learn, play, and create!

I grew up in Tennessee but spent most of my adult life moving around (Utah, Colorado, North Carolina, Georgia) . We recently moved to WNC, and we’re excited to be back in the mountains.  I live with my husband-Chris, my son-Calvin, and our dog-Coolio. We love traveling, hiking, biking, and basically any adventure we can find!

I’m excited to get to know your children, your families, and get my hands dirty (literally!) at Wild Oak!

Fun facts:

  • I met my husband while we were both working at a summer camp in the Poconos Mountains.
  • In 2018, we restored a vintage camper and roadschooled Calvin, visiting 20 National Parks and 22 National Monuments. 
  • I’ve visited 43 US States and 13 countries. I love exploring and learning about new places!
