Ms. Emily Favero

I am going into my ninth-year teaching art at Butterfield. Prior to teaching art, I was a special education preschool teacher with the district. I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood Endorsement and an Art Education Endorsement from Northern Arizona University. I also received a Master’s in Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University. I have hosted various extra-curricular clubs over the years, including drama club, art club, and, most recently, an origami club.

I believe that a large part of education and attracting students to life-long learning are the hands-on experiences students receive in school. I believe the most important aspect to creating a solid base in education is that students have fun and want to come to school every day. When students enjoy their education, important life skills naturally fall into place, such as building confidence, working with others, persistence, and higher-level critical thinking skills. I constantly strive to make my classroom a fun environment in which students work on building such skills.
