Emily Tinker

Welcome to my Ms. Tinker's Home Page. I am very excited for my 4th year at Boevers Elementary! I have taught PreK for 6 years and I am looking forward to teaching Kindergarten this school year. Northeastern State University is where I graduated from in 2011. I majored in Early Childhood Education and am very passionate about best practices for my early learners! I try my best to provide a safe, fun, and engaging environment for my students. My goal is to instill the love of learning, reading, and going to school for the little ones. 

Kindergarten is such a precious time in a young child's life! Our Kinder team believes that play-based learning is essential in our day. Included in our schedule of Reading, Writing, Math, and Science/Social Studies, we have at least 45-60 minutes of free- choice center play. Center play is intentional learning activities set up around the room for children to explore. The free choice is given to motivate your child in loving to learn!! If you have any questions about our schedule, please don't hesitate to contact me! 

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my son. His name is Felix and is one year old. I also enjoy playing with my dog, Fred, crafting, reading, Netflixing, making classroom projects, getting on Pinterest, scrapbooking, and spending time with family and friends. 

Thank you so much for visiting my page. Hope to have an amazing 2018-2019 school year!!
