Emily York followed in the footsteps of many of her Hopkins teachers. And it led her back to the very place she fell in love with education. Now a teacher at Eisenhower Elementary, Emily proudly works for the school she first attended. An avid traveler alongside her husband, Emily loves reading books, and spends time spoiling her beagle, Vigo.
Favorite Hopkins High School hangout? Anywhere in the mall.
Favorite Band of 1998? Dave Matthews Band.
What Hopkins teacher made a difference? Mr. Dart showed me the power of the written word. Mr. Eisland taught me about the power of the spoken word. Mrs. Schimelpfenig taught me to love learning. And Ms. French (now Frondell) inspired me to be a teacher, just like her.
How did Hopkins prepare you? Hopkins helped me identify my strengths and love of learning. I hope to help my students discover the same.
