Welcome to Ms. Emmell’s page.  This year, will be my third year at Enosburg Falls High School as the Algebra teacher on the 9th grade team. I teach all sections of Algebra 1 including one section of Algebra for EFMS 8th grade students. I am also teaching CORE math, as well as one Algebra 2 class this year. I am originally from Bristol, Vermont and have enjoyed my first few years of teaching and learning from the students of Franklin County. In May of 2015, I graduated from Saint Michael's College in Colchester, Vermont with a BS in Mathematics and Secondary Education. Outside of school I enjoy hiking, cooking, swimming, and spending time with friends and family. I like math and hope you will learn to like math as well!

 

I am excited to start another year at EFHS and get to know students and families. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. I believe family involvement is essential to student’s success and I look forward to embarking on this partnership together.
