My name is Emma Lohe and I am thrilled to be back at Immacolata this year! I was born and raised in St. Charles County, attending Academy of the Sacred Heart, Immaculate Conception Dardenne, and St. Dominic High School. I then headed to Mizzou and received my Bachelors in Elementary Education. I will graduate from Lindenwood University with my masters in education in May 2020.
This will be my third year at Immacolata. Perviously, I taught 5th Graders at St. Paul School in O’Fallon, Missouri. Fifth Grade is a unique time of transition from elementary to middle school years. As their teacher, my role is to guide my students to be both independent problem solvers and young men and women who take responsibility for their own learning. I love to learn and laugh alongside my students, and I model that learning is a lifelong journey to explore. Most importantly, working in a Catholic school allows me to share the faith I love as I help guide my students along their own faith journey.
Teaching 5th Grade Religion, Math, and Science will allow me to present information and assess learning in a variety of ways to reach each individual learner. I enjoy incorporating individual work, group work, hands-on, and project-based learning experiences in my classroom. Project-based assessments give students the opportunity to express their individuality and creativity while demonstrating their understanding of concepts, resulting in greater ownership of and excitement for their learning.
I am so excited to begin this adventure with you in August!
