Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. David Emerick
My name is Mr. David Emerick and I am the 7th grade Social Studies teacher at Stetson Hills. I am married to a wonderful woman who is a nurse case manager. We have three children, Bella (11) and Gabby (10) and Hudson (2).
Just to give you some background information about me, I grew up in a small town called Lacombe, which is just north of New Orleans, LA. My father worked for Exxon Mobil and I was fortunate enough for him to provide a great childhood and to go on many vacations growing up. My Father was a HUGE history buff, especially the Civil War. Because of this, I had the opportunity to travel to many of the Civil War battle sites such as Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Shiloh, and Chickamauga. It was a great experience that I will forever remember.
I attended both LSU and Southeastern Louisiana University, where I received a Bachelors in Business Administration and an alternative certification in Secondary Education: Social Studies. However, I'd like to think I've also learned a great deal by hands-on experience through the hard work of rebuilding New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and by traveling the country (I've personally visited 46 of the 50 states) exploring many historical sites and national landmarks.
I'm excited to be teaching at such a great school and I look forward to making a positive impact on my students this year.
