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 13th 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 30 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 are expecting their first baby - a boy, this October!
We will gain another daughter-in-law named Lydia when she and our son Jon get married this November!
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 best!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 booksthat I will share with your child this year.
