Emma Teal began as Wooddale’s Senior High Associate in August 2020. We use her full name because that’s sort of an Emma Teal thing to do, to call you by your first and last name. Emma is passionate about connecting young people with Christ through community and discipleship and enjoys every opportunity she has to be with students, being the extrovert that she is! Prior to joining staff, Emma studied Elementary Education and Mathematics at the University of St. Thomas and was a 5th grade STEM teacher. She is currently attending University of Northwestern – St. Paul, pursuing her Master’s in Ministry Leadership and Educational Studies. Emma finds joy in spending time with her family at the cabin, playing volleyball and Spikeball, going to concerts, and diving into the latest art project!
