All About Your Teacher

Hello! I am so excited to be your teacher this year! 

My name is Emily Georgalas and I've been teaching at Jefferson for 13 years. I have taught first grade, third grade, and now fourth grade.  I went to Purdue University and have my Masters in Reading.  Although teaching math is my favorite part of the day! Here is some information about your fourth grade teacher: 

As a child, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher.  I loved playing school, teaching swim lessons in high school, and tutoring children all through my college years.  I had many positive teacher role models in my life that lead me to becoming a teacher, my mom being the most important one! (She is a retired first grade teacher!) 

When I am not busy teaching, grading, or lesson planning I enjoy cheering for the Purdue Boilermakers, Chicago Cubs, or Chicago Blackhawks.  (My husband is a huge Sox fan, so we're a house divided!!) . I also love to read books, especially books by Roald Dahl (Matilda is one of my favorite books!) .  I love the color pink, the smell of a good book, fresh cut flowers, and am terrified of heights! No roller coasters for me! 

 

My Family  This is my family.  My husband Nick and I have two daughters, Nora and Evelyn.  They are oh so sweet, but oh so wild and keep us on our toes!  As a family, we love to go to the beach, ride bikes, and eat ice cream!  We love to travel, especially anywhere warm with a beach!  We enjoy spending time in Charleston, South Carolina every summer.
