Pre-K, Preschool/Family Day Facilitator
My name is Miss Emily, and I am so excited to return to Co-Op! I am originally from Montana, and I moved to Spokane to attend Gonzaga University. I graduated from GU with a degree in Special Education, and taught for 7 years in an elementary Behavior Intervention classroom.
I decided to stay at home full time after the birth of our twins Zach and Izzy (14 yrs.) My husband, Warren, and I and have since added two more to our clan, Maddy (9) and Cal (5). We also have 2 dogs, Leo and Tillie. There is never a dull moment at our house!
My family has attended NW Parent Co-Op for the past five years. I love the co-op preschool model. Parental involvement is so important to early development, and we have so much to learn from each other. There is such a wealth of creative, wise, talented, and supportive families among us. My contribution, as a facilitator, includes a background in early childhood development, experience implementing play-based instruction, and an enthusiasm for integrating music and movement into curriculum. I look forward to sharing this year with you!
