Emma holds a Bachelor's degree in Earth Science from the University of Ghana. She fulfilled her national service at the Department of Earth Science due to her love for teaching. She was granted a scholarship to pursue her masters in Geology to fill in the shoes of the lecturers. She also obtained a grant from UNESCO for laboratory studies at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. She has three years of teaching experience from having taught part-time after her Master's program.
Her love for children drove her to seek employment with DaySpring International Academy working as an Administrative Assistant for four years. But she saw teaching as a natural gift since she spent 14years teaching in the children's' ministry at her church. Therefore, she went further to train in Montessori Education.
