Primary Teacher Assistant
Emmelyne Rosales Fernandez is a Primary teacher assistant. She began her career at Pacifica assisting in the office and in daycare and was thrilled to join Sarah Hogaboam in the Montessori classroom. Emmelyne loves that children learn at their own pace. One of her favorite areas of the classroom is the Practical Life work. “The children learn many skills while doing things they enjoy, such as slicing cheese, pouring water, washing windows, and embroidery.” She also enjoys arts and crafts and incorporates them into the classroom and playground activities.
Emmelyne appreciates that Pacifica Montessori is a calm, welcoming environment not only for the children and parents, but among the staff as well.
Emmelyne received a B.A. in Spanish and a minor in applied Psychology with an Educational Studies track from the University of California, Santa Barbara. During her first year of college, she began working as a teacher’s assistant and later as a head preschool teacher.
During her free time, Emmelyne enjoys arts and crafts, reading, and spending time with her family, especially her nephew. Back to Our Staff Page.
