About Emily

Description of Miss Emily

I decided I would just post a blog entry about who I am rather than adding a whole page dedicated for it!

Hello! My name is Emily Wolford. I’m an aspiring elementary teacher located in central Indiana. I’m an undergraduate student at Ball State University. ​In May 2022 I will graduate with a major in Elementary Education and a concentration of mathematics. I’m also minoring in African American Studies. I have a huge passion for math and numbers and I love learning about different cultures and traditions around the world. Education policy is also an area I have extensive research in.

​I have 10+ years of experience teaching children (4 years teaching academically). I have seven years of Taekwondo experience, with many of those spent as an assistant teacher for my Dojang. I was responsible for teaching children as young as 4 and adults up to 65 years old. Through several years of training, I recieved my first and second degree black belts and earned my world certifications as well. Specific experience in 2017 includes my time spent as a volunteer Zoo Camp leader for the Indianapolis Zoo. I spent my year volunteering for various activities at the Zoo as well as a handful of responsibilities with my campers.

At Ball State I participated in the Make-A-Wish foundation club, the Best Buddies program, and served as President of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars. I am an active member of Alpha Chi Omega and maintain good standing within my sorority. I’m so excited to finish college and start my career as a future elementary school educator! I can not wait to meet my students and create such a fun and inclusive classroom environment for them. ​​
