Meet the 2018-19 NeSmith Teacher of the Year: Mrs. Emily Wilken

  • hide

    Hello there! My name is Emily Wilken.  I have ten years of teaching experience.  This is my sixth year with Community ISD at NeSmith Elementary. I graduated from Texas A&M Commerce in May of 2008 with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. 

    I always wanted to be an elementary teacher.  My very own first grade teacher is the source of my inspiration.  She instilled a love of learning that I still have today.  It is my hope to share that same love and excitement in my own classroom. I want my students to feel safe, loved, and inspired the moment they enter my room. 

    When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my family. My husband, Joshua, and I live in Royse City.  We have two children, Hayden and Harper.
