Emily Gilbertson

Hello! This is my twelfth year in the Lawrence Public School District and my eighteenth year in education. This is my second year at Prairie Park Elementary. Prior to this, I taught for ten years at Lawrence Virtual School. I am originally from Central Minnesota. I moved to Kansas to attend MidAmerica Nazarene University, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Since then, I also received an endorsement to teach English to speakers of other languages from Emporia State University, and a Master’s Degree in Education/Education Technology from Peru State College. I have many interests, but most enjoy hiking, running, swimming, attending musical concerts/plays, and traveling. I hope to make a difference in the lives of the students I work with throughout the year at Prairie Park Elementary!
