Emily Jane


Lead Teacher

I’m Ms. Emily, and I am so happy to be at ODS! I have a 13 year old daughter and a 9 year old son, who both attend the language immersion schools. My husband of 15 years is a Rock Hill native, while I grew up with a father in the Coast Guard, which had us moving frequently.

My love for teaching kids started when I was still a kid myself, having “summer camps” for the younger kids in my neighborhood, and reading to and playing with little kids whenever I could. I’m very excited to be the teacher in the one’s classroom! I love this age, where learning and growing is happening so quickly!

One of my favorite Bible verses is Romans 15:13
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 10 years this Fall . We have three sweet kids and two cats. We are loving life at this stage with three littles to keep everything interesting!


All my life I have been around babies and toddlers, as my brothers and I are pretty spaced out and my mom also kept kids often. I started helping with pre-k church when I was in youth group and my love for littles has taken off ever since! I love working with toddlers because it is just amazing how much they are able to learn and grow in such a short amount of time.


I love 1 Samuel 12:16 - “Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do right before your eyes!”  It’s a reminder that I need to take a step back sometimes and remember that God’s got this.

I am a Rock Hill native. I have been married to my husband Jae for almost 8 years and we have 2 beautiful daughters.


I was an elementary school teacher in South Korea. I was also a preschool Sunday school teacher for many years. Preschool is by far my favorite age to teach. I love watching these sweet children learn and grow.


I am so excited to be joining the ODS team! My youngest currently attends ODS and she loves it!


In my free time, I love to bake especially with my girls. I am also active at my oldest daughters school. Whenever my family and I have a chance we go to the beach. The beach is our favorite place to visit!


My favorite memory verse is: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭41‬:‭10‬ ‭NIV‬‬
