As an educator for over twenty-one years, Emily, a Middle School Science Teacher, has a wide range of valuable experiences inside a classroom. She spent the bulk of her career in high-needs, low-socioeconomic schools. Her experiences have focused not only on the academic needs of her students but more often on their emotional, behavioral, and social needs. Though she started teaching elementary school students, she quickly found her “home” in middle school as a science teacher, and, most recently, as a math teacher as well. She will tell you it is not for the faint of heart, but she loves it. In addition to teaching, Emily has been working for Kesler Science for almost three years, creating engaging and standards-based content.
“I grew up in a neighborhood similar to the ones my students live in. I have seen and experienced much of what they are going through and use that to connect with them. I encourage my students to set their goals high and try to give them the tools they will need to fulfill them.” Emily currently resides in NJ with her husband, son, and cat.
