Meet Our New Elementary Special Education Teacher, Emily Houlihan

“Emily’s kind spirit shines through from the first time you meet her. Our students will be lucky to work with her this year,” said Elementary School Principal Amy Irwin.

Ms. Houlihan’s motto is “when given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.” Her favorite book is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and she had a more difficult time narrowing down her favorite movie, “I love all the Pixar movies, if I had to choose I would pick Toy Story,” she said.
