Welcome to our EL Classroom Website
My name is Emily Cronk. This is my third year here at Adams Elementary (2017-2018.) I am really excited to be here to work with a wonderful group of students and awesome fellow teachers. I was born and raised in Hopkins, Minnesota but I left to live, work, and experience the world for the 15 years. I taught English in South Korea, taught EL in Osseo and Anoka, was a nanny in New York City, worked on organic farms in Washington state and California, and taught EL in Tennessee. I am happy to be back in Minnesota, the greatest state in the country. I obtained my B.A in elementary education from the College of St Benedict in 2000 and then an additional license in English as a Second Language from Hamline University in 2006. I love teaching ESL so much I also have a certificate to teach Adult ESL learners.
I have a one-year-old son and a husband who is also a teacher (high school science).
I love being outdoors; camping, running, biking, playing tennis, gardening, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, orienteering, rock climbing, hiking - finding any excuse to play outside. I also love cooking, baking and eating healthy food. It's great to be back in Minnesota, close to my family, and surrounded by so much to do.
I look forward to working with your child, see them grow, and with your support help you child achieve success.
