Emily Stapp

MIddle Campus ESS Department Chair

Emily Stapp earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh, later earning her Master’s of Science in Teaching from Pace University in New York City. She taught special education K-8 in a variety of settings and schools for 15 years before moving into the role of Exceptional Student Services Coordinator.

Ms. Stapp’s earliest job was working at Easterseals, a nonprofit organization that works to empower individuals with disabilities, as a camp counselor for children. That experience, coupled with the inspiration provided by her parents, both of whom had careers as social workers who served their communities, helped lead her to a career as a special educator.

Before joining the ANCS community as a staff member, Ms. Stapp worked in residential care, providing direct care and educational support to children and youth in Atlanta. While earning her master’s degree, she taught special education in the NYC Public School system for five years and then returned to Atlanta to continue her teaching career.

As a resident of Ormewood Park, Ms. Stapp feels invested in giving back to the community in which she lives through working at ANCS. She is dedicated to ensuring equity and inclusion remain at the forefront when serving students and families receiving special education services.

When not at work, Ms. Stapp can be found spending time with her family and friends. She and her husband are the proud parents of two children who attend ANCS elementary school. Together, they enjoy singing, dancing, and playing daily, walking, scooting, and biking in the neighborhood, traveling to see family, and discovering new places.
