Emily Marvin

What is your position at Baranoff? How long have you worked here?
Kindergarten; this is my first year :)

What inspired you to work with children?  

I love being around children. Building relationships with my students, and watching them learn and grow, is my passion. I also adore children's literature and love to share it with my students.

What do you do in your free time? Do you have any hobbies?
I spend most of my free time outside or in the kitchen. I love relaxing and reading in my hammock, or hiking the greenbelt. I also love to cook. I spend most of my Sundays in the kitchen, listening to jazz music and trying new recipes.

What do you find to be the most rewarding aspect of your job?
I love to find little moments of joy with my students everyday. Giggling at a silly book together, seeing children show kindness to one another, or when a student says "I love school!" or "I did it!!" Those are the times that make teaching so student rewarding to me.

What is your favorite book?
Leonardo the Terrible Monster.

What was your favorite subject when you were in school?
Reading.
