About the Teacher

Welcome to 3rd grade at Lewisburg Elementary School!  My name is Emily Carol Alef, and I am so excited about the school year!  I hope you are, too.

I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. My master's emphasis was in reading and language arts.

For as long as I can remember, all I ever wanted to be was a teacher. As a child, I had a dry-erase board, and I would teach my imaginary students as I wrote the lesson on my "chalkboard.” Having a love for children and coming from a family of teachers, I was blessed to always know what I wanted to do with my life. I count my opportunity to teach young children and to be here at Lewisburg Primary as a privilege, and I take this responsibility seriously.

We are going to have a lot of fun learning this year. The next few months are sure to be busy as we explore and grow together. I look forward to preparing my students to progress in their education, and I fully expect to learn as much from them. I cannot wait to get started!
