Miss Emily Gurner

Hello Shepard Spartans!

My name is Emily Gurner and I am a 7th grade special education teacher on the white team! I have been working at Shepard for 4 years. In 2011, I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. GO HOOSIERS! I received my master's degree in Differentiated Instruction from Concordia University in Chicago. At Shepard, I teach skill development (resource) and direct instruction math for 7th grade. I am lucky that I get to spend some time every day in math, science, social studies, and ELA with our wonderful white team teachers!

I grew up in Deerfield, IL and went to Kipling, Shepard, and Deerfield High School. Over the summers, I spend my time in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin at Camp Agawak for Girls. I was part of the administration team and the summer of 2018 was my 19th summer! 

I look forward to getting to know you all! We are going to have an amazing year together!
