Longview School science teacher lauded
According to a release issued on behalf of the Longview, the award is the highest honor the federal government can bestow on a teacher specifically for math or science.
Part of what makes her job so challenging yet rewarding, Sherman said, is that Longview is a school that specializes in taking students from all over Rockingham County with behavioral or emotional disabilities.
“We get a lot of students that are marginalized who don’t have a lot of credits and are looking to make up ground. A lot of our students have issues, such as anxiety, depression or anger, so the school offers individualized education plans. We have very small classes, no more than eight per class,” Sherman said.
“She came to us last year from a public school setting and the way she teaches matches exactly with what it is we are looking to do on our 154-acre campus. Emily has brought a new dimension into our school with the length and breadth of how she uses the environment as a teaching tool, from taking water samples from the Lamprey River to tracking animals after the first snow,” Longview Director Tom Jennings said.
