• My name is Emily Sides. I am a second grade teacher at Southwest Elementary. I have been teaching in grades 2-5 for twenty years. I was born in High Point, North Carolina. I have an older sister, a twin brother, and a younger brother who was my first "student" when I played school as a child. I made sure he was ready for kindergarten. I've always known that I wanted to be a teacher. I also knew early on that I wanted to attend Appalachian State University.

    I love the mountains! Other interests and hobbies include reading, watching sports, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends. I also attended High Point University earning my Masters Degree in Education.

    I love teaching second grade! It is going to be a great year!
