Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Golden

I am Emily Golden and I am the Title I Pre-K teacher here at Yates Mill Elementary.  I have been a teacher in Wake County for 7 years, but this is my 16th year as a teacher.  All of my experience has been in Pre-K, and I love getting to be a child’s first teacher in school.  My undergraduate  degree is in Early Childhood Education and my masters is in Reading.  I have a passion for early literacy! 

I am the mom to two amazing daughters. My oldest daughter is 12 and my youngest is 8.  I enjoy spending time traveling and seeing the world with my husband and girls.  I also love to read, and spend time at the beach. I was born and raised in West Virginia, and the mountains will always be in my heart! I bleed blue and gold, however I have loved living in North Carolina and now consider this my home away from home! 

I knew I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was in third grade, and feel lucky to do this job! I believe in building great relationships with my students, and in turn preparing them for the rest of their time in school.  I’m so thankful for the time I get to spend with the youngest learners in our building!
