Hello my name is Emily Patchin! I was born and raised in the small town of Porcupine Plain, Saskatchewan. I am the second oldest of my three siblings, with an older sister and two younger brothers. I got my first job when I was 16 at our local daycare and it helped make the decision that I was definitely going to become a teacher one day. While going to university, I still spent my summers returning to my hometown to work at this daycare because of the amazing environment. My mom being a teacher has also definitely helped me prepare myself on my journey towards becoming a teacher, being able to see the ups and downs of being a teacher and knowing what to do through any possible rough patches. I have never imagined any career besides teaching that interests me this much and that I know that I will be passionate about.
