Miss Emma Avery
My name is Ellen Avery, but I go by Emma. I am so excited to be teaching in Shungnak again this year and am even more excited to be teaching the wonderful 1st and 2nd graders in the village. I’m also in charge of the Spelling Bee and Battle of the Books (K-2). I've been teaching for two years, and I'm so glad both of them have been in this amazing village.
I’m originally from Texas and got my bachelors degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. I enjoy reading and learning new things in my spare time, and my main hope as a teacher is to do my best to instill that love of learning into the students I teach. The “It’s a We” attitude in this village really helps to show the students that education is important, and I encourage all parents to make sure their students are well rested, well cared for, and ready to face each day with an eager attitude. An education will get them farther than anything else in this world.
