My name is Emily Rote and I love being the Language Arts Specialist here at Mann Elementary. Prior to teaching at Mann I taught Kindergarten for three years and First Grade for one year. I attended Teacher's College Columbia University to earn my Master's Degree and Reading Specialist Certification. Teaching is my passion and my goal is to instill a love of reading in my students! It is my hope to help promote and foster a lifelong love for reading, and share my enthusiasm for literacy with the students and families here at Mann Elementary. Outside of school I enjoy yoga, baking, and spending time with my friends and family. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
