Department(s):Kindergarten, Senior Team Lead Teachers
Hi, my name is Emily Dirks and I moved to Denver in 2006. After growing up in a small town in Ohio, I moved to Michigan for my college education. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education with a focus on Language Arts and Science from Eastern Michigan University. This is my 17th year of teaching, and my 13th year at Florida Pitt Waller. I feel blessed to have a career that I truly enjoy and love. My other love in life is being a mother of my two children Maddy and Evan, who are both graduates of DPS. I also have two dogs Toby and January, one cat Charles, and Franklin the turtle, who is loved by all Florida Pitt Waller students.
I enjoy reading, sports, and especially biking and hiking. I love being outdoors!
