Emily Hersch

Lunch and Recess Teacher
Eton Academy
Emily Hersch, class of 2010, has always had a passion for helping young students. After her graduation from Eton Academy, Emily pursued higher education focusing on early childhood development. She started volunteering in the Lower School and in 2017 was hired full time as a Lunch and Recess teacher at Eton Academy. She also has taken on responsibility for the Lower School After Care program, ensuring students continue through the end of their day with an enriching, vibrant program that is anchored in the Eton Essentials.

"Eton helped me learn how to self-advocate and utilize key strategies to help me process how I learn through metacognition. I am incredibly grateful for the foundation they helped me build, and was eager to return to serve our students in the same way I was - with kindness and care."
