High School
We have the best teachers in the world!
Mrs. Beenen
Emily Beenen, 11/12 English Language Arts Teacher
Emily has been teaching English/Native Literature at NACA since the doors opened in August of 2006. She’s originally from Sheboygan, WI (go Packers!), and received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Emily relocated to Albuquerque in 2000, where she earned her teaching license and MA in Education from the University of New Mexico. She started teaching both Advanced Placement English Literature and Language in 2014, and enjoys the challenge of actualizing the NACA mission of preparing students for the rigors of college and disrupting the status quo through the strength and tradition of their cultural identity. Emily is an enthusiastic fan of holistic wellness and can often be heard proselytizing about and cooking nutrient dense foods, doing yoga, running, biking, and of course, reading.
