Hi there, I'm Erin.
I'm the daughter of an artist and an engineer and that simple fact has molded me as an educator. I am a middle school teacher with a passion for all things for STEM and I have a strong belief that teaching is truly an art. To some, I may be an unexpected science nerd, but my love for Nye, Frizzle, and Newton runs deep. I'm rarely found without a cup of coffee (usually a cold one) nearby and my favorite place to be in the world is snuggled on my reclining couch with my husband and kiddos... reclining couch by the way? Best. Decision. Ever.
I have ten years of teaching under my belt and I've worked with both elementary and middle school students. Although, I love them all, middle school is my happy place. It wasn't necessarily my favorite when I, myself, was a tween navigating my way through seventh and eighth grade, but now I see it as the beginning of independence. I see it as a time for students to stretch their wings, and a time of growth in every facet of life. I believe that building relationships is the best classroom management tool... oh, and my absolute favorite thing about middle schoolers? They'll humor me and laugh at my cheesy science puns... well, at least they do, periodically. See what I did there?
