Greetings! I am Emilee Upah and I am so excited to be joining the team of educators at Alburnett. I recently graduated from UNI with a degree in English teaching and a minor in English as a Second Language (ESL). I just moved to Cedar Rapids from Marshalltown (yes, I witnessed the large tornado that went through town) and I am enjoying the move so far. If you have any suggestions on where to eat, feel free to drop some names. I am always looking to try something new! I really enjoy fishing with my dad, watching historical documentaries/shows, cuddling with my two golden doodles (Rita, left, Maggie, below), and I've been dominating in Scrabble Cubes this year.
What I am most excited for is being promoted to aunt in February 2019! My older brother, Sam, and his wife, Haley, are expecting a little nugget that I am eagerly waiting to meet. I have a younger brother, Max, who is a power lineman for Consumer Energy in Nevada, and my parents, Trent and Michelle, have been happily married for almost 30 years!
I am really looking forward to experiencing my first year of teaching at Alburnett and learning about the community!
