Other Information


Emily "Emma" Wellman joined Rowland Hall in July 2018, excited to immerse herself in the Beginning School community. Before that, she worked for five years at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, first as a teacher and then an administrator, and was an adjunct instructor at the City Colleges of Chicago. She has also founded and run a small childcare business called Banana Mashers, also in Chicago. She has a bachelor’s degree in linguistics from the University of Michigan, and an MS in child development from the Erikson Institute.

Emma is a certified nutrition coach and CrossFit trainer. In her life outside of school, she loves fitness, cooking good food, reading graphic novels, and spending time with her dogs, cats, and husband—especially in nature.
