Hello, I’m Ms. Emma, and I am delighted to be a Year 4 teacher at Benedetto XV International School. Originally from North Carolina in the United States, I bring a passion for education and a diverse background to my classroom.
I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and French, which has provided me with a strong foundation in teaching and language instruction. After completing my degree, I embarked on a journey that led me to Paris, where I spent several years teaching English as a second language. This experience allowed me to expand my teaching skills and gain valuable insights into language acquisition.
In 2019, I made the exciting decision to move to Italy, where I continued my teaching career while immersing myself in the Italian language and culture. It has been a rewarding experience to learn alongside my students and contribute to their educational journey.
From a young age, I had a dream of making a positive impact on children’s lives, and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be living that dream. Every day, I strive to create a nurturing and engaging learning environment where my students can grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
Beyond the classroom, I have a passion for exploring new foods, as well as staying active through activities like swimming. Reading is also a cherished hobby of mine, and I often encourage my students to develop a love for books and storytelling.
Being part of Benedetto XV International School allows me to combine my love for teaching, languages, and cultural experiences. It is a privilege to guide and inspire the next generation of learners, and I am dedicated to fostering their curiosity, creativity, and love for lifelong learning.
