Organization: Housman Institute
Emily worked at Housman Institute’s lab school for five years. She began her work teaching preschool and Pre-K and went through years of training from Dr. Donna Housman in the begin to ECSEL program. Emily became the Program Manager where she then trained and coached teachers in their classroom implementation of begin to ECSEL language, tools, and techniques, as well as in their ECSEL-integrated emergent curriculum. The ECSEL program made an immense impact on Emily herself both personally and professionally, on her classroom and the children and families in her care, and on the teachers that she coached and mentored.
Emily’s passion for the program led her to join Housman Institute full time as a Content and Curriculum Development Specialist & Coach. She is now the Manager of Curriculum & Coaching where she writes and oversees content created for the institute’s programs. Emily also supports the implementation of begin to ECSEL in school systems with teachers, administration teams and site leaders, and families.
