Mrs. Emily Keyser


Hello!  My name is Mrs. Emily Keyser.  I have been blessed with the gift of Catholic education, as I am a product of the Philadelphia Archdiocesan Catholic School System.  I graduated from St. Stanislaus School and then continued my Catholic education at Lansdale Catholic High School.  I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Gwynedd-Mercy College.  I truly value the gift of Catholic education and will be forever grateful to my parents for the sacrifices they made in order to send my sisters, brother, and me to Catholic school. As I enter my twenty fifth year of teaching, I am excited to have the opportunity to do so here at Mater Dei Catholic!  I have been up and down the grade level ladder.  I taught kindergarten for half a year, second grade for nine years, and fourth grade for seven years.  I taught sixth grade Social Studies and ELA, along with eighth grade Religion for one year.  This year will be my eighth year in first grade.  Each grade level has been a rewarding experience, offering new and exciting challenges.  I strive to provide a faith-filled atmosphere that allows opportunities for my students to think critically, solve problems, and to communicate and collaborate effectively.  I am proud to be teaching the children of the 21st Century with the educational technology provided to help make learning fun and engaging.
