Ms. Emerson

Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Emerson

Welcome to My Classroom!

Hey ya'll! My name is Megan Emerson and I am absolutely over the moon to be your student's 3rd-grade teacher at JPES this year! I am a Kannapolis City kid, and I feel like I have come home to teach this school year! I could not ask for a better place to be. 

I graduated from AL Brown in 2010 and went on to Appalachian State in Boone (Go Mountaineers!) for my undergraduate degree. I earned a Non-Profit Public Relations degree but ended up missing working with students every day as I had during a few different internships. Long story short I went back to school and finished the Graduate Program at UNC Charlotte to teach Elementary Education. In 2017, I taught part of the year at Beverly Hills Elementary School in Cabarrus County in a Kindergarten-First Grade combination class. I loved my Kindergarten/First Grade kiddos, but I am so much happier with our sweet 3rd graders! This is my 2nd year here at JPES and I am so excited to get the year started!

We have lots of wonderful things in store for this year, and I cannot wait to share everything with you!

Please feel free to contact me by email, through Class Dojo or by school phone at (704) 933-2935.

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:

UNC Charlotte - Graduate Program (Elementary Education)
Appalachian State University - Nonprofit Public Relations

Educational Philosophy/Vision:

I believe that every child deserves to receive that absolute best education they can. I feel responsible for the outcomes that they will produce every day, and if I expect their best then they deserve my best. Every minute of every day is a valuable amount of time and if we waste it then we're wasting their education. I also believe in never giving up, and if something is difficult today then we work harder on it tomorrow.

What We are Studying:

I'll be updating this the closer we get to school, so please come back and check each month!

Things parents/guardians can do to help:

Please check the Red Folder and Agenda every night! There may be an important note from me or another teacher in these! I will also be sending home a monthly newlsetter through our class dojo messages, so be on the lookout for those.

Also check your Class Dojo account regularly! I love to use Dojo in my room, and often post updates throughout the day with pictures so that you can see what we are accomplishing in Room 19! Dojo also gives me a quick method of communication and to remind you about homework and other important papers!

The Homework Agreement Form will be coming home the first week of school! This form will tell you about the 3rd-grade policies and expectations! Please sign and return ASAP! Thanks!

Online Resources:

I will be posting different tips and tricks throughout the year, as well as the different sites we use during the school year!
