Ms. Emily Guynn - Family & Consumer Science

50.jpg

Ms. Ricketts grew up in Richmond, Virginia where she graduated from J.R. Tucker High School in 2003. She then moved to Blacksburg to attend Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!), earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development with a minor in Psychology in 2007, followed by a Master’s Degree in Counselor Education in 2009.

She worked as a School Counselor at an Eastern Elementary/Middle in Giles County for 3 years before moving to Galax in the summer of 2012. This is her 2nd year teaching Family and Consumer Sciences at GHS.

“My favorite part about my job is being able to teach students real-life skills that they will be able to use in their future. I feel so lucky to be working with such a great group of kids! I have always felt that I learn as much from my students as they do from me!”
