My name is Emily Cathell. I have a strong passion for education and I am enthusiastic to work with students striving toward academic and personal achievement. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services with a concentration in Administration and Family Policy from the University of Delaware. I have a Master of Education in School Counseling and have recently completed my Special Education certification in Autism and Severe Disabilities from Wilmington University. I have experience as a Family Services Specialist for the Division of Family Services. I have also worked as a paraprofessional and counselor for the Autism program with Red Clay Consolidated School District. My goal is to encourage the social growth of students and to promote their involvement within the school and community. I have been a head coach at the middle and high school levels for field hockey, track, and cheerleading. I enjoy assisting with extracurricular activities with students and aim to establish positive relationships with parents as well. I look forward to working with the students and families of Gateway Lab School!
