I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education from UAHuntsville in 2010.



I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year!  My name is Emily Ortiz, and this will be my seventh year teaching. I taught 1st grade here at Mill Creek during my first year and have been teaching kindergarten ever since!  Kindergarten ROCKS!  I believe kindergarten is a pivotal year in a child’s education, and I will work hard to make this a meaningful and magical experience for your child. 



I am originally from Ardmore, Alabama, and am one of seven children. After helping my sisters learn to read, I knew that teaching was the profession for me! I am married to my best friend, RJ Ortiz, and we have a sweet and silly two year old boy.  We are also the proud parents of three "fur-babies"- Effie, Petey, and Nibbler.
