Mrs. Emily Vanim
Originally from upstate NY, Emily Vanim moved down to PA in 1998 to attend St. Joseph's University. In 2003, she graduated with her Master's in Elementary and Special Ed (with a reading specialist certificate) from St. Joseph's University. She achieved her Master's + 60 level benchmark! Since college she's been teaching 5th grade here at Pickering Valley. She believes that the 5th grade is the best grade to teach! Additionally to teaching her 5th grade class at PV, you can find her in the building on the Wellness Committee, helping out on TedEx, or working with West Chester University field experience and student teachers.
