Emma is a recent Los Angeles transplant, having moved from Michigan in 2012. She had the opportunity to study abroad in Oaxaca, Mexico in 2008 where she fell in love with the language and the culture. This experience influenced her to pursue a degree in Latin American Language and Culture from Oakland University in Michigan. Emma has been working with kids of all ages for almost 10 years. She worked as an assistant teacher in a Montessori elementary school throughout college where she discovered her passion for teaching. She hopes to enroll in a teacher certification program in the near future.
