My name is Emily Brannen and I was born and raised in Houston, TX. After graduating Highschool I went to earn my Associates Degree in Interior Design. Not long after I gave birth to my son and realized that being a teacher was my true calling. I graduated in 2018 with my Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education from California Baptist University. I was a substitute teacher and was a teachers aide while in school. I am now certified in EC-6 and ESL. I moved to Dayton with my husband and son 6 years ago and I love living here. This is my first year teaching and I am so excited! I am so thankful for this year and am truly looking forward to being a third grade Reading, Writing, and Social Studies teacher! It is going to be a great year!
