Hello! My name is Mrs. Emel and I am a math teacher at Bellefonte Area High School. I am a 2011 graduate of the Pennsylania State University with a degree in Secondary Education Mathematics. I earned my Masters Degree in the summer of 2016 from Wilkes University with a MS in 21st Century Teaching and Learning. I am currently enrolled in a Doctorate of Education program at Wilkes University. This will be my 8th year at BAHS, but my 10th year of teaching. I am originally from Chalfont, Pennsylvania, which is located in Bucks County, PA. One interesting fact about me is that I was in the Penn State Blue Band for 4 years and I loved every minute of it! I got married in July 2019 and had my first child, a little girl named Enslee, in July 2020 and will thus be on maternity leave until mid-October.
Mr. Rob Irwin will be my long-term substitute.
This year I will be teaching Pre-Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2. I have high expectations for both my students and myself, so be ready to be challenged but to have fun in the process! For more information, please visit the Google Classroom site for your individual class. Daily announcements, assignments, the course syllabus, and worksheets can be found there.
Very much looking forward to meeting you all in October. Have a wonderful start of the school year and be safe!
