Hi! My name is Emily Machin and I will be teaching 5th grade at your amazing school this year. I’m from the great state of Texas, where I graduated from UT Austin and taught three years of 3rd grade. After meeting my husband, we moved to Utah for his job and I taught four years of 6th grade. Last year I worked part-time as a teacher mentor for Granite District. I was able to mostly be home with my now-1-year-old son, Jonah, who has changed my whole world. As a family we love the outdoors, camping, hiking, and playing with our new puppy. When I’m alone (which rarely happens anymore!) I enjoy aerial dance and fitness. But most of all I enjoy the environment that teaching provides and I can’t wait to jump back into it at Edgemont! I’m looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year with you.
