   Welcome to 2nd grade at Lewisburg Primary School!  My name is Emily Carol Alef, and I am so excited about the school year!  I hope you are, too.

  I grew up in New Albany, MS, and I recently moved from Rankin County where I taught 2nd grade for the past two years. 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. I have two wonderful parents and am the oldest of three children. 

   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 in the 2nd grade this year. The next few months are sure to be busy as we explore and grow together. Teaching is a two way street; 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!
