Emese: River Otters Teacher (5th/6th grade) Student Teacher

Growing up in Portland, I went to Outdoor School every chance I could get—in grade school and high school. This is where my love for science and nature blossomed. I also studied Rainforest Restoration in Australia and earned a bachelors in Environmental Science. Now I’m earning my Masters in Teaching and I can’t wait to teach and get to know everyone in the Springwater community. In my free time I love going to live music, building large scale metal sculptures with my friends, and enjoying nature through hiking and camping.
