Hello! Thank you for taking the time to check out a little more about me! You can read through my mini biography and find my social media links below! Enjoy…
My name is Emily Wolford and currently I am a senior at Ball State University. I’m a student enrolled in both the Teacher’s College and Honor’s College as well as an active member of Alpha Chi Omega Fraternity. I’ve held many leadership positions while on campus including serving as the Chapter President for The National Society of Collegiate Scholars! I have also been active in the community, volunteering my time at Minnestrista, A Better Way, Motivate our Minds, and many more small / local events. Freshmen year I was a member of the Best Buddies club as well as serving on the Outreach Committee for the Make-a-Wish Foundation at Ball State. Outside of school time, I love to spend time with my friends, boyfriend and dogs. Some of my favorite hobbies are hiking and being outdoors. I love to play sports and growing up I earned my first and second degree black belts in Taekwondo!

Summer 2021 – I accepted a job offer as an associate teacher for preschool students! I work with ages 0-5 and spend most of my time in the infant room with the younger babies.
Spring 2021 – Meeting virtually via Zoom and teaching students twice a week for a total of 6 weeks. Students were 2nd graders at Burris Laboratory School in Muncie, Indiana. I taught about summarizing and key aspects of a story. I also focused on generating an overall theme of a story, and creating a symbol to represent the chosen theme.
Fall 2019 – Meeting with students twice a week at Burris Laboratory School in Muncie, Indiana. I taught a group of four 1st grade students about how to construct a paper compass and about the cardinal directions.
Fall 2018 – Observing once a week a 7th grade remedial math course at Southside Middle School in Muncie, Indiana
Prior to 2018 – In high school I received a lot of good training in teaching children and adults of all ages in Taekwondo lessons. While not academic, the teaching experience I gained was still very insightful.
