    Welcome to First Grade!

    My name is Suzy Emerson and I am your child’s teacher this year.  

    I am a graduate of Ottawa University with
    a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. 

    This is my 14th year at Diamind Canyon.
    Prior to teaching, I worked as an instructional aide in Kindergarten
    and Special Education.  
    Before that, I coordinated an in-home
    childcare facility for 11 years.  

    I have been married for 31 years to a wonderful man named Jeff.  

     My husband and I have 3 amazing sons -

    Justin, Jon, and Jared.

    We welcomed our daughter-in-law Elaine in October 2018 when she married our son Justin! 

    They have a sweet boy named Archie - my first grandbaby - who will turn 1 year old this October!

    We were blessed with another daughter-in-law named Lydia when she married our son Jon last November!  She is the "Other Mrs. Emerson" at D.C.

    Together we love traveling, watching the Diamondbacks

    and playing pickleball.

    I grew up here in Phoenix,
    but San Diego is our family's favorite vacation spot.
     I enjoy taking pictures, attending concerts - Rob Thomas in particular - and walking my dog, Josie.
      I love the characters from Suzy’s Zoo.
    Suzy is my favorite, of course. 
    Speaking of favorites...Ariel (the Little Mermaid) is my girl!

      Curling up with a good book is one of the things I like to do the most! 

    My love of reading has grown from a great respect and appreciation of children’s literature. I hope to nurture a love of reading through wonderful books 
    that I will share with your child this year.
