Ms. Emery Thomure
Welcome to Ms. Thomure's class page! I am a Northern Arizona University graduate with a degree in English Education and a certificate in Literature. Being a former student at CDO I am more than excited to begin this new year with you.
Defining Moment in Education:
Like many, I was not sure what I wanted to study as I neared the end of my high school career. I have always been a creative type, loving both theatre and literature. Senior year, I had the opportunity to write and direct my own play. I learned what it meant to be a leader, coaching my peers toward a common goal. That was the moment I began my quest toward English education.
Core Educational Beliefs:
I believe in the power of wisdom and respect. I believe that students learn best in an environment of kindness as well as one that promotes values of knowledge, self-worth, and belonging. My classroom celebrates the ability to look at literature from all perspectives.
