Hello, my name is Emma Dale, and this will be my fifth year working with the wonderful AMS Community. I am originally from the small town of Marion NC, which is 30 miles east of Asheville in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Since I can remember, I have wanted to work with children, and have had numerous, positive experiences in various professional roles in this capacity. I discovered The Montessori Method of Education when I moved to Charleston, SC, in 2017, and just fell in love with the child-centered educational approach implemented through this method. Before moving back to NC, in 2019, I was employed as the Casa Assistant at Sundrops Montessori in Mount Pleasant, SC. Every day I wake up and feel so grateful that I have found a career that I love, and can continue to grow in. This year I am making the decision to go back to school full time! I will be getting my associates degree at AB tech. After my two year program, I plan to transfer to a four year university to finish up my bachelors degree in elementary education, and moving towards getting my Montessori Certification. When I’m not working I like to spend my time with my family, reading, running, doing yoga, playing my ukulele, or hanging out with my cat.
I’m so excited for the upcoming school year here at AMS!
