Emma is currently teaching Spanish 1, 2 and 3 at a high school in the Bronx. Before becoming a Spanish teacher, she double-majored in Spanish and Latin American Studies at SUNY New Paltz. After graduating, she traveled to Madrid, Spain and Quito, Ecuador, where she lived and taught English to elementary school children for three years.

She loves to teach through music, culture, and story-telling. Emma has experience with preparing students for all parts of the LOTE exam.
