Ms. Emond

Primary Math Specialist


I am beginning my fourth year as the Primary Math Specialist in Forest Park School District 91. My role at Garfield and Betsy Ross schools is to support teachers in the teaching of Math. The teachers that I work with are awesome! They are dedicated practitioners; their students’ needs are central to the instructional decisions they make.

After school I oversee and co-teach the First and Second Grade Math Enrichment Program that began in 2014. Last year I broadened the program to include Science, Technology, and Engineering. I look forward to designing and refining the program for the 2017 - 2018 school year.

I am originally from New York City where I worked in various capacities – Teacher, Staff Developer, and Elementary Mathematics Specialist in the New York City Department of Education. Before moving to the Chicago area I was Director of Elementary Mathematics across the five boroughs.

I have a BFA in Dance from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas and a MS in Math Leadership Education from Bank Street College in New York City.
