Emma Nuneviller

Teaching Associate, Preschool

Emma has always had a passion for helping students to see their full potential by learning in ways that works best for them. Her alma mater, Lasell College, helped to nurture this passion through many teaching experiences in public, private, and charter schools. While at Lasell, Emma was hand selected to teach on the island of Antigua. While there she was fully emerged into the culture, and curriculums of the island. She also was able to do professional development and educate the teachers on the island about the Universal Design for Learning, which is a set of guidelines that helps teachers plan lessons that incorporate the learning types of all the students in the class. It was a truly memorable experience that taught Emma that alternative schools is where she felt that she could make the biggest impact on the children and they could on her as well.

She graduated with a BA in Curriculum and Instruction from Lasell College in May of 2015 and joined Voyagers' in September of that year. Just as Voyagers' was learning to use their new facility, she was learning about the philosophy of the school alongside its students and other faculty members. She has attended the Progressive Educators Network conference in New York, the Association of Constructivist Teaching conference at Kean College, and went through intensive training to become a certified tutor in the practices of Lindamood-Bell. Through these many experiences of professional development, and the everyday experiences that Voyagers' provides for her, she has grown to better understand the Reggio Emilia and Progressive philosophies of the Preschool/Toddler program. Emma is excited to experience another school year, create memories, and continue to learn with her Voyagers' family!

Voyagers’ is a school that it true to its mission statement where children are honored, respected and challenged to do and be their very best. Teachers are 100% dedicated to motivating their students by relating the environment and their everyday life to what they will be learning in the academic classroom. As a parent of a Voyagers’ high school student, I wished we had known about the school earlier on. Traditional private school was not able to tap into my son’s sense of curiosity, learning differences and need to be challenged for his unique intellect, the way Voyagers’ did. Having the ability to take college courses for credit while still attending the high school was a big plus as well. The defining end result was a young man who graduated confident and with a keen sense of accomplishment and desire to keep learning.
