Jarman Elementary -  Emily Mose, 4th Grade

Fourth grade teacher Emily Mose has been named the 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year for Jarman Elementary School.

“I became a teacher because I want to make a difference in the lives of my students,” Mose said. “I want to share the love of learning with my kids by creating relevant, creative, and engaging lessons. I want to be a positive influence in their decision-making skills, behaviors, strengths, and weaknesses. I became a teacher so I could make a positive impact on my student’s lives by building their self-esteem and encouraging life-long learning.”

Teaching is different this year because of the the pandemic, Mose said.

“I build student relationships with face-to-face interaction. It is difficult for my students to see my facial expressions with a mask on, BUT I am learning how to make those expressions with my eyes. I want my students to know that I love them even though we’ve had to adapt to the ‘new normal’ of air hugs and air high-fives. Building positive relationships with students can still happen with a mask on and social distancing taking place with lots of laughter and learning going on in our classroom.”

Mose started teaching at Union Public Schools in 2017.

“I am a Union lifer,” Mose said. “I went to Union from Pre-K through 12th grade. It is a great feeling being back in the classroom at Union teaching kids! I graduated from Northeastern State University in 2017 with my elementary education degree. I am currently pursuing my master’s in library media at Northeastern State University and plan to graduate in May 2021.”
