Emily was devoted to those she loved & loved them fiercely. She was an elementary teacher who gave fully of herself to make a difference in each child's life. Teaching was her passion from an early age. She attended the U of R earning BA and MS degrees. She taught in RCSD, Spencerport, and Brockport, believing each child deserved literacy education at an early age for success. She was vocal about civil and human rights, loved travel and exposure to varied cultures, music, reading, snow, Christmas, Harry Potter, shoes and pumpkin spice. In such a short time she has impacted many lives and is so dearly missed.
