Meet Mrs. Emerson

My name is Paddy Emerson and I am so excited about third grade!  I know we will have a fantastic year learning together in room 210.  

When I am not at school I like to spend time with my family.  I am married to a wonderful husband named Jeff and we have four amazing children.  My children are Rachel who is a senior, Annika in tenth grade, Nathan in eighth grade, and Grant my youngest is in sixth grade.  I have two grownup stepdaughters named Brittany and Blair.  We are an active family and love to ride our bikes, hike, and go boating together.  We also like to walk our Siberian Husky.  Her name is Zaria.  Our other pet is a cockatoo named Tiffany.  

I really love to learn.  I have my BS in Finance from the University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management, and I went back to earn an MBA in Finance and Strategic Management.  I then decided my passion was teaching, so I attended Saint Mary's University to obtain my teaching license.  I am currently working on completing my Master of Instruction degree.  I hope that I will always have the excitement of continuing to learn!

Other hobbies I enjoy are reading, running, scrapbooking, and puzzles.  I like to volunteer and help in the community.  I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know each of you!
