My name is Emily McCormick. I am the counselor at
Saddlebrook Elementary School.
Because I will work with your student weekly, it is
important for you to know a little about my background.
I grew up in a small town in Northeast Nebraska. I was raised
on a farm with a large swine operation, a few cows, and a lot of corn. I went
to the same school, Oakland-Craig, from Kindergarten until I graduated in 1998.
During my youth, I was very active in 4-H and FFA and was actually a state
champion swine herder.
I received a Bachelor’s Degree in History from the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2002. I worked in the insurance industry for
2 years after college. I returned to school and became a teacher at Omaha Bryan
High School in 2005. I have since returned to school 3 times, earning a
Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and a certificate in English as a
Second Language. Currently, I am finishing a second Master’s in School Counseling through
In 2003, I got married to my husband Landon. In 2006, our
daughter, Kinsley, was born. Landon is also a school counselor at Burke High
School and Kinsley is a 5th grader.
Our family loves to travel. Some of our favorite places are
San Francisco, Germany, and Costa Rica.
I am very excited to begin working with the students,
parents, and staff at Saddlebrook. I hope to ensure classroom success for
I look forward to a wonderful year and can’t wait to meet
