Buchanan, Emma (1st Grade)

Welcome to Mrs. Buchanan's Classroom

Emma McMahan Buchanan
Welcome to 1st Grade!
   I am a graduate of Appalachian State - Go Mountaineers! I received a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a Concentration in Visual Arts.  I have been teaching at Fairview since March of 2014. I started my teaching career as a 4th grade teacher. This is my fifth year as a 1st grade teacher. I fell in love with 1st grade and am amazed each day how much they learn and grow! The best part of my job is getting to love, and laugh with your kids every day!  I love Fairview, and feel honored to be a part of such an amazing school! I can't imagine any school as wonderful as FES! 
   I am married to my husband Ray, he is a firefighter for Black Mountain and Swannanoa fire departments.  He proposed my first year teaching during a planned fire drill! We have one daughter, Raelynn Kate! She has changed our lives in more wonderful ways than we could have ever imagined. We are excited that our family will be growing with another sweet baby in January!  We also have the sweetest Chocolate Labs, Lilly, and Wick. 
   I come from a family of teachers. Both my mom and dad taught in Buncombe County along with my older brother who is now an assistant principal at our Alma mater, Owen High.  I am so proud of my roots in education and blessed that it has always played such a huge role in my life. 
    Please never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns! I am so excited to be a part of your child's life!
