Hello and Welcome! My name is Emelia (like Amelia Bedelia) Block and I am very excited to share this 6th grade journey with you and your family! Sixth grade is such a pivotal year and I cannot wait to make lasting memories!
My Education and Professional Background
After receiving my Bachelors in Elementary Education and a minor in English from Northern Arizona University in 2012, my teaching journey began in Creighton School District as a third grade teacher. After two years of teaching 3rd grade, I made the jump to 5th grade. Following another two years, I made the decision to move to the Chandler Unified School District where I became a Toro in 2018! Teaching is not all I do! Currently, I am a member of the Young Professional Council and work closely with The Cancer Support Community of Arizona. I am also pursuing a Master's in speech and language pathology.
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy continues to change and develop every year, but I am a firm believer that in order for a child to learn, a relationship must be built first. I strive to build a safe environment for all children to be able to be themselves and not be afraid of making mistakes. I believe in challenging, celebrating and encouraging students to reach their full potential. Every student has a voice and every voice should be heard!
