Hi! my name is Emily Wanta and I am excited to introduce myself as your child's kindergarten teacher this year. This will be my 8th year teaching and my 4th 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!
I am originally from New York but have lived in Arizona for most of my adult life. I love it so much here. I attended ASU (Go Sun Devils!) and graduated with my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. Since graduating, I have had the opportunity to teach kindergarten for my entire teaching career. 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.
I am married to my wonderful husband Erik and together we have two sweet fur babies! Molly is our rescue, and Addie is our full bred golden retriever. They keep us very busy! I absolutely love dogs and wish I could have a house full of them. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, hanging out with friends, being an auntie to my sweet niece, hiking, playing softball and crafting.
I can't wait to meet you and your kindergartner at meet the teacher night. I know this year will be the best ever!
Love, Mrs. Wanta
