Emily Roland is our new upper school biology teacher.
I went to school at DePaul University in Chicago, IL. and earned my BS in biology and MEd in secondary education with a focus in biology. After graduate school, I moved to Pittsburgh, PA and worked at an elementary school. Finally I moved to Michigan with my husband, Zac, and our furry child, Wilson Mandela where I continued working in the classroom both at the elementary and high school level.
When I am not in the classroom, I can be found busying myself in a number of ways. When weather permits, I enjoy gardening, walking Wilson, running to explore nature, or biking around town. If weather leaves me homebound, you will find me in the kitchen cooking up a storm or baking up a fresh batch of cookies. As the summer slowly came to an end, I was planning and preparing for my first day at Roeper. I’m really excited for this new chapter in my life and cannot wait to see what this school year has in store.
