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, 2nd, and 3rd graders in the village. This is my third year teaching and I'm very proud to say that all three have been here in Shungnak. My hope is that this year will be as exciting and educational for both the students and me as the past two have been!


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.
