Meet The Teacher Mama

Hey, Y’all! My name is Emily. & “Mama” to my kids. & “Mrs. DeVane” to my coworkers and older students. & “Mi’Bane” to my sweet little Pre-K babies. I have been teachin’ since 2010 and Wifin’ and Mommin’ since 2011. Over the course of my career I have had the opportunity to teach at every grade level from Pre-K to 5th, and at many different learning levels through general and specialized education. What a wild life to live, when you are not only loving and raising the brood of tiny humans you parent, but also an additional 22+ little loves each school year! Everyday, I am flying by the seat of pants, but everyday, I’m living the dream!
