Welcome to Ms. Dornburg's Classroom

Ms Dornburg
Dear Parents, Staff, and Students,

My name is Emma Dornburg, it is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I get to become a member of the Fontana Elementary School Community! I’m truly honored to be a part of the 6th grade team and look forward to positively impacting every student’s performance and school experience.

I’m originally from Port Washington, WI; a small town near Milwaukee. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a Bachelor’s Degree in education. After graduation I spent a year in the West Bend School District as a math interventionist and then decide to move to Arizona. I spent two years in Arizona teaching 8th grade math. I enjoyed every minute of it, especially the weather. Although it was a great experience, I decided to move back to Wisconsin to be closer to my family.

Another passion in my life besides teaching is playing volleyball. I have played and coached volleyball the last 12 years. I love both indoor and sand volleyball and try my best to part of a team where ever I go. I also love going to our family cabin. We have a house located on the Embarrass River just outside of Shawano, WI. I love getting out on the water with family and friends and making long-lasting memories.

This year I hope to inspire, challenge, and guide my students in their lifelong learning journey. I will provide a comfortable environment for students to take risks, encourage each other, and push themselves to their fullest potential; all while having fun! I look forward to meeting everyone and please feel free to stop by the classroom anytime or contact me anytime. I know this year will be a great one!!
