Russom Elementary School, where she was a 4th grade teacher to her “precious kiddos,” as she called them. Emily lived a short but full life. Her students were her first priority; however, in her free time, she enjoyed cooking, entertaining, watching her Georgia Bulldogs and Atlanta Falcons, traveling to Ormond Beach, taking cruises, spending time with family, friends and her boxer, Bailey.
