Emily Heller

I am from a small town called Bangor, Pennsylvania--just about two hours south of New York City and two hours north of Philadelphia. I first moved to Huntsville in 2012 and lived here for 5 years before making my deferred-dream to live in Europe a reality by teaching in Slovakia as a Fulbright Teaching Fellow. While overseas I got to travel and through that experience along with other trips I've been to 16 different countries! I returned to Huntsville last summer after another year-long detour living in New Orleans--my favorite U.S. city. In Huntsville I live with my Siamese cat, Nina, I teach fitness classes, and enjoy hiking and staying active.

My favorite part about teaching is getting to know my students and helping to guide them to their perfect college and career pathway.
