Emma Rage, Kindergarten and 1st grade teacher
Kensel, North Dakota
Hello! My name is Emma Rage and I am a second-year teacher this year. I teach a combined kindergarten and first grade classroom in rural North Dakota. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of North Dakota. My passions are STEAM, personalized learning, and getting educators into rural schools. When I am not at school, I can be found reading, enjoying a cup of coffee, playing my ukulele, following various sports or getting myself organized for school.
I am passionate about small rural schools and believe that they have a
lot to offer students, communities and teachers. Young teachers can
learn a lot from being in a rural community. I teach in a very small
school and believe that I have learned more in my time of being a
teacher in a small school than I would have in a larger school. I am
passionate about what I do and advocate for small rural schools daily. I
grew up in a large city school and have a lot of experience working in
large schools. Rural schools have always felt like home to me and I am
excited to get new educators excited about rural schools.
The Young Educators' Advisory Council is an initiative for early career rural teachers. These young educators will serve RSC as advisors to strengthen our mission in the recruitment, preparation, and retention of rural teachers. YEA council members will serve for two years engaging in online conversations.
