Emily has been a loyal Brahma, teaching here at DBHS since the 1995-1996 school year.
Every year Emily pushes herself to become a better teacher, and with that she adapts her instructional strategies to best meet the needs of all of her students. This includes her willingness to incorporate technology into her classroom on a daily basis. Her students consistently rave about how great of teacher she is.
Every year Emily takes a group of nearly completely new AP students and transforms them into students that are capable of handling any AP History class that comes along after hers. She works well with her colleagues, always lends a helping hand, and always volunteers for those awesome teacher performances in rallies.
Emily integrates 21st century technology and strategies to create engaging lessons for her students. Emily demands excellence from her kids and encourages them to meet those expectations. This sets a standard for her students that move on into other AP social science classes.
Emily offers her services to the school beyond the classroom. She is a BTSA support provider, she opens her door to students at lunch for help, she has been a class advisor on multiple occasions, she was a soccer coach at DBHS, and she has built a reputable AP Euro program that is a well-oiled machine.
