Who's New?
Lakehill Welcomes Emily Wolfe
Emily Wolfe joins the Lakehill faculty this year, teaching second grade.

Originally from Oklahoma City, Wolfe earned her Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Education degrees from Southern Methodist University.

Now in her third year of teaching, Wolfe taught first grade in Richardson ISD p rior to coming to Lakehill.

She has a younger brother who recently graduated from Oklahoma State University, and her parents still live in Oklahoma City. She and her fiance, who are getting married in April, have a two-year-old toy Australian Shepard named Bailey. Wolfe is a talented dancer, and was responsible for choreographing numbers in the upcoming Upper School musical, Camelot . In her free time, she also enjoys singing, shopping, and trying different restaurants.

Wolfe is passionate about educating and growing young minds. " I have always loved working with kids, ever since I started babysitting as a teenager. They can bring out the best in people and have the ability to brighten the day with kindness. I can't imagine spending my time any other way than helping future generations learn and succeed."

Wolfe believes that Lakehill is unique because it allows students to excel in areas that interest them instead of just the regular core subjects. "They are given responsibility and expectations that allow them to transform into leaders and thinkers." She also appreciates the unique opportunity that Lower, Middle, and Upper School students have to form such a strong community.

"I love being creative and seeing what children are capable of when they can think outside the box and push the boundaries of what is considered normal or standard. I can't wait to see how much my class has grown over the year compared to where we started!"
