Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Emily Estridge

I am a native of Rock Hill and have lived here all my life with my parents and four sisters. My husband Chris is also from Rock hill and we have have two wonderful children. Savannah is 10 (going into 5th grade) and Nicholas is 8 (going into 3rd grade) at Northside School of the Arts with me. We have two great dogs. Pearl, a Chinese Crested Powder Puff, who looks like a cotton ball puff, and Deuce, an Old English Bulldog who never leaves Savannah side. I graduated from Winthrop University with a BS in Early Childhood. I am also National Board Certified. 2016-2017 school year will be my 12th year teaching. I have taught kindergarten, first grade (1 single gender boys class), and second grade throughout my teaching career. I enjoy reading mystery books, cooking, taking photographs, exercising, creating projects and discoveries for my students, and most importantly spending time with my family. We love to go hiking, swimming, kayaking, going to the beach and having family game night. As an educator I truly enjoy seeing and getting to know my students each and every day. Our class becomes a little family where we care about each other and want the best for each other. The excitement in students when they know they have learned something new is priceless.
