Mrs. Tammy Emerson

My name is Tammy Emerson. I'm so excited to call Sully Elementary my new home!  The 2022-23 school year marks my 22nd year teaching. I have been a reading specialist for the past 13 years and taught 2nd grade for 8 years in Frederick County. I earned my BS from Clarion University of PA and my MS from Shenandoah University.  I live in Winchester, VA with my husband of 28 years, our three sons (twins/20, 18) who attend JMU, Radford and VCU. When I'm not teaching, I love to travel with my family. We have visited Mexico, snorkeled many islands in the Caribbean, and hiked trails in our National Parks.  I'm looking forward to building relationships with students, families, and staff. Go Hornets!
