Welcome to kindergarten!
I am so excited to start this school year with you. My name is Emily Wanta and I will be your child's kindergarten teacher this year! This will be my 6th year teaching and my second here at San Tan. We are going to have so much fun this year and learn so many new things together, I just can't wait! Before I meet your sweet kindergartner I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself.
I am originally from New York but have lived in Arizona since middle school. I attended ASU (go Sun Devils!) and graduated in 2014 with my bachelors degree in Early Childhood education. Since graduating I have had the opportunity to work in the Isaac Elementary School District and the Washington Elementary school district where I taught at an A+++ school. I have taught kindergarten my entire teaching career and I think it is the best grade ever! They always say everything you need to know you learn in kindergarten and it is so true.
This past January I had the most beautiful wedding and I got to marry my wonderful husband Erik. Together we live in Gilbert with our two dogs Molly and Addie. I absolutley love dogs and wish I could have a house full! When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time at home with my dogs and my husband, hanging out with my family and friends, going to Diamondbacks games, and fun DIY projects.
I can't wait to meet you and your kindergartner at meet the teacher night. I know this year will be the best ever!
