Mrs. Emily Trawick
Hello and welcome to Wilson K-8 Middle School Technoloy! My name is Emily Trawick and I look forward to working with all of the Wilson Wrangler students. I have always had a love for children and an interest in technology. I spent my college years learning the newest computer science software. I earned my Bachelor's degree from the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS) in Management Information Systems which allowed me to master the components involved in the hardware and software development and implementation for business and managerial needs. Following college, I entered the law enforcement field where I continued to use my technological skills while serving as a Police Officer and Detective for a department in Atlanta, Georgia. My degree allowed me to successful navigate cases including fraud, child pornography, kidnapping, homicide, missing children, as well as many others. In addition, I was chosen to be trained as a Forensic Interviewer for the state of Georgia due to my connection, patience, and relatability to children. I continued my education by completing my Master's degree from Boston University where I was then selected to continue my computer mastery as Polygraph Examiner. As a Polygraph Examiner, I worked with computers daily managing software operations and technical issues for police departments, which eventually lead me to follow my law enforcement career with the federal government.
I have always had a heart for teaching. While serving as a Police Officer/Detective in Atlanta, GA, I was also a training officer and instructor. I was also selected to instruct at several law enformcement academies throughout the region. During my years in the federal government, I have served as an instructor, educator and mentor. I love being around children and having a positive impact on their lives. Throughout my career, I have managed to always make time for children. I have been an active member of my community as a volunteer coach for sports year-round. I thrive on having a positive impact on children, not only to make them a better athlete, but more importantly to make them a better person, friend, and community member.
I have two Wilson Wranglers of my own, a daughter (Ryan) and a son (Drew). As I was approaching retirement with the federal government, I had a chance to do what I should have done years ago and live out my dream to become a teacher! I have worked with my own children for years and always wanted to give more time and effort to better the lives of children in any way possible. As a Wilson Wrangler teacher, I love being a small part in the lives of the community in which I reside and where my children will grow up.
