    Hello! My name is Emily Stewart, and I am so excited to be a Petal Panther!  I teach English Language Arts and Social Studies. My partner teaches Math and Science.  I am blessed to be a part of the amazing work that is happening at Petal Elementary School.  Most of all, I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to teach your child in 3rd grade! Thank you for taking the time to visit my page, and I look forward to partnering with you to ensure that your child receives the best education possible.  

    About Me:

    • I graduated from William Carey University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  I have a concentration in Reading and an endorsement in English.

    • I grew up in Vancleave, Mississippi which is located near the Gulf Coast. I currently live in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

    • I come from a big family! I have four sisters and one brother.

    • A few of my hobbies are reading, cooking, and crafting.

    My Education Philosophy:

    Children are the future.  As a teacher, I know that my most important role is to help instill in the upcoming generation a love of learning as well as a sense of community.  In my classroom, I will treat my students with respect and strive to create an environment in which students feel comfortable and eager to learn.  I will strive to meet the needs of all of my students to ensure that all students reach their full potential.  Specifically, I believe that all students can be readers and authors, and I hope to pass my love of reading and language to my students. Thank you for your support!
