Meet the New Student Teachers!


Emily Lang: Emily is in her senior year at Northern Arizona University. She is studying elementary education and working towards her bachelor’s degree. She has been on the Dean’s List the last two years at NAU. Emily grew up in Northern Vermont and moved with her family to Arizona a week after graduating high school and loves the “dry heat”.
If she is not at work or school you can find her enjoying time with family on the lake, enjoying the outdoors, at the movies, or curled up with a good book. Emily has always known that she wanted to work with children no matter what platform it involved but realized quickly that teaching was her calling. Emily is firm believer in the theory that children don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care. As a future teacher her plan is to motivate her student’s by capturing their hearts and imaginations. Emily is looking forward to her time here at Pinewood and experiencing Greece!

Chloe Stinson: Chloe is a senior at Northern Arizona University working towards her bachelor’s degree in elementary and special education. She was born in California, but have lived in Arizona for most of her life. Chloe has wanted to be a teacher for as long as she can remember; but not just any teacher. Chloe wants to work with the U.S. Department of Defense and teach on American military bases in European countries.
She hopes to one day be a first grade teacher doing what she loves best; helping students to grow and learn. Chloe loves to travel internationally, and hopes to one day bring her cultural experiences into the classroom to teach her students what this world has to offer. During her spare time Chloe loves to be surrounded by family and friends, dance, and cook. She is so excited to be a part of the Pinewood family and can’t wait to work with the students and staff here!
