Old Town Star Staff News

October 19th through October 30th

Our ROCK STAR of the Week Is...

Name: Emily Wiebel

Current Gig: First year, FCC Teacher

Personal Life: I have 2 sons, ages 7 and 9. They are the loves of my life!
One word to describe yourself and why: Happy! I am generally a happy person and have a smile on my face. :) I appreciate the little things in life and always try to see the bright side of a situation.

Favorite hobbies away from school: Running is my all time favorite pastime! I ran in high school and college on scholarship, and I try to go for a short job every evening. I also enjoy anything outdoors, and anything with my kids. A charity close to my heart is CASA, and I like to volunteer for them any chance I get.

Favorite song: Jesus take the wheel -Carrie Underwood

If I wasn't at Old Town, I'd...: Be working with children somewhere!
