Director of Education
Prior to coming to the Arboretum Emily coordinated, wrote, and taught pre-K to grade 5 school programs for the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden at the New York Botanical Garden. Before that, she was a classroom teacher for 10 years in NYC public schools with a couple of brief stints in private schools: one in Honduras and one in Wyoming. Her training is in special and bilingual (Spanish/English) education. She completed UConn's Master Gardener program at the Arboretum in 2015. She absolutely loves teaching outdoors. When she is not at the Arboretum, she is often exploring outside with her 4-year-old daughter.
