Emily West


Meet Emily West, who is embarking on her journey at World Academy in April 2024. Emily has always had a passion for working with kids. Whether she’s organizing fun camp activities at a small campground in Maine, babysitting, or, most recently, helping out as a substitute teacher in Litchfield, NH, working with kids has always been something she’s loved. Currently, Emily is pursuing a degree in Elementary Education with a focus on English at the University of New Hampshire, aspiring to become an elementary school teacher.

Outside of school, you’ll often find Emily hanging out by the beach or trying to master golf (emphasis on trying!). She also cherishes spending time with her friends and family in her hometown of Litchfield, NH. When summer arrives, you’ll frequently spot her by the coast in one of her favorite places: Wells, Maine.

Although Emily is new to World Academy, she’s eager to dive in and be a part of the team. She believes that there is nothing quite like witnessing the excitement on kids’ faces when they figure something out or try something new. Her goal as a substitute teacher is to ensure that every student feels welcome, appreciated, seen and prepared to take on the world. Emily can’t wait to get started and contribute to this wonderful community!

Welcome to our school, Emily!!
