Emma Banta

1st Grade Lead Teacher

Emma Banta, 1st Grade Lead Teacher, is excited to be joining the Prospect Sierra community this year! Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, she earned her master’s degree in early childhood education from Bank Street College of Education in 2020 and has spent the past five years teaching kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade in Brooklyn, New York. When Emma’s not teaching, she enjoys reading (fiction!), trying out new recipes, spending time with family and friends, asking the question “can I pet your dog?”, and exploring her new neighborhood with her partner, Adi.
