My name is Mr. Emmerson and I teach fourth grade. This is my 4th year of teaching in Aurora Public Schools and my 2nd year at Century Elementary. I attended Gonzaga University for my undergraduate degree and received my teaching degree from the University of Northern Colorado. In my free time, I enjoy playing and watching sports of any kind. At Century, I run ski club and athletics club. I love watching the students learn and enjoy things they love. In our school, we have lots of movement, which is something that I enjoy the most about our school. For example, students move throughout the halls to exercise their bodies and minds before calming down in the Zen Hallways. We also have days of whole school movement where the whole school comes together and does laps and other physical activities. It is not only a bonding moment for students of all grade levels to come together but a time where the students demonstrate our values of safety, compassion, mindfulness, and empowerment.
