Mrs. Emily Ortiz

I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year!  My name is Emily Ortiz, and I have been teaching since 2010. I taught 1st grade here at Mill Creek during my first year and have been teaching kindergarten ever since!  Kindergarten ROCKS!  I believe kindergarten is a pivotal year in a child’s education, and I will work hard to make this a meaningful and magical experience for your child. 

I am originally from Ardmore, Alabama, and am one of seven children. After helping my sisters learn to read, I knew that teaching was the profession for me! I am married to my best friend, RJ Ortiz, and we two have sweet and silly kids.
