Emily McMacken is this week’s Educator of the Week


 Emily McMacken  is a Florida native.  She moved to Tennessee to be with her finace after graduating

from Clemson last June with a Genetics and Biochemistry degree and a Masters in Education.  It’s

safe to say she loves Science.

Now she’s passing that love of Science on to her students as a 5th grade teacher at Happy Valley

Middle School.  McMacken has 120 students throughout the day  She says her ultimate goal is to

teach them to love learning and become life long learner.

She does that by getting them out of their seats,  working together, and making science fun

“With 5th grade it’s really important that they do hands on activites which really helps them see and

feel what’s going on and  making it relatable to them helps them see how it applies to thier everyday

life.  There are definatly some students who find Science a bit overwleming but for the most part they

really enjoy the subject because it’s so hands on,” Said McMacken

Congratulations to Emily McMacken This week’s educator the of the week.
