Ms. Emily Duerringer
Hello!! My name is Emily Duerringer, and I teach 3rd grade at Bear Branch Elementary! This is my third year teaching 3rd grade Math and Science. Previously, I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades.
I was born in Toledo, Ohio, but moved to Kingwood at the age of 18 months. I went to public school K-12 in Humble ISD, with K-5 at Bear Branch. I graduated from Kingwood High School and attended Texas Christian University (TCU) and Southern Illinois University (SIU). I was a swimmer all through elementary, middle, and high school, as well as college. I coached year-round club swimming for Eagle Swimming Association for 3 years and Blue Tide for 2 years. I also coached for Bear Branch Swim Team for 4 years, Greentree Riverchase Swim Team for 3 years, and then 7 more years with Bear Branch Swim Team.
I do not have kids, nor am I married. I have two back and white cats, Beeker and Babz (they are brothers), that I treat like my children. They are incredibly spoiled! I have 2 brothers, Chris and Steven. My parents, Bruce and Theresa, still live in Bear Branch, and I see them quite often. My mom was a member of the BBE PTA for many years and helped with the very first Fall Fest!
I am so excited to be working at Bear Branch again and I know it is going to be a fabulous year!
