Sophia Killeen


Hello Emerson Families!

I am Sophia Killeen and I am thrilled to be a Third Grade Teacher at Emerson this year. I graduated from Wheaton College in May of 2021 with a B.A in Elementary Education and endorsements in English as a second language (EL) and middle grade mathematics. I completed my student teaching at Sandburg Elementary in Wheaton, where I had the pleasure of teaching 5th grade. 

What compels me in teaching is the fostering of deep learning, free from the fear of failure. My goal is to inspire students to do their own thinking, ask their own questions, and creatively convey their own understanding!

I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri (go Cards!). Some of my favorite pastimes include traveling, rock climbing, and spending time drinking coffee with friends!
