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!
- 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!
