Emily Westphal has been expanding horizons through English class for all grade levels since she arrived at DeLaSalle in 2002. A North Dakota native, Ms. Westphal has lived in the Twin Cities for more 20 years. She graduated with a degree in English from the University of St. Thomas, where she also received her Master’s in the Art of Teaching. Ms. Westphal worked in information technology after graduate school and before coming to DeLaSalle. The world is Ms. Westphal’s classroom and she believes in finding ways to serve its needs through such work at volunteering at a shelter for homeless teens, a wild cat sanctuary, and a crisis nursery for children.
