Mrs. Emily Fanning

I grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina in a small town called Brevard! My home county is known as the "Land of the Waterfalls." There are tons of opportunities for hiking, fishing and camping! My senior year of high school I was fortunate enough to receive the NC Teaching Fellows Scholarship and the rest is history!

I graduated from WESTERN CAROLINA UNIVERSITY in May of 2011. GO CATAMOUNTS!! I have a double degree, a Bachelor of Science in Social Sciences Education and a Bachelor of Science in History. I recently completed my AIG certification in July of 2017, through East Carolina University (GO PIRATES!), to add gifted education to my teaching license. 

I moved to Onslow County in October of 2011 when I accepted a teaching job at Jacksonville Commons Middle School. I taught 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies there for 5 years. I met my husband, Kevin, who was stationed at Camp Lejeune in 2012 and we got married in July of 2014. We moved to Sneads Ferry to be closer to the beach in 2016 and I transferred here to Southwest Middle School. GO COLTS!! I have been teaching here for two years, both of which have been in 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. I am currently teaching 7th grade Social Studies.

I am a proud fur mama to a blue tick beagle named Willard and a retriever mix named Gracie!  I am also expecting my first child in January of 2019 and am excited to start my new adventure with a precious little boy!

Willard and Gracie, my fur-children!
