Instructional Coach, Seton Teaching Fellows
Learning sometimes occurs because someone insists that you recognize the excellence in yourself.
- Rita Pierson
Emily Brooks serves as instructional coach for Seton Teaching Fellows. Emily joined the Brilla Network in 2019 after a move from Denver to New York. Before joining the Brilla/Seton Team, she taught elementary school in Title I settings for five years and also held multiple leadership roles. In these roles, Emily effectively drove her team’s achievement in gaining strong content and instructional knowledge, ultimately accelerating student learning. It was through her work in these communities that she fostered a deep passion for serving traditionally underserved communities and prioritized equitable education. Emily has a master of arts degree in curriculum and instruction with a focus on culturally and linguistically diverse education from the University of Colorado Denver, as well as a bachelor of arts degree in elementary education from Michigan State University. You will find Emily in her free time exploring the outdoors, reading, cheering for the Michigan State Spartans (Go Green!), or spending time with her family and friends.
