Erika attended Portland State University, where she earned a Bachelors degree in Child and Family Studies, then earned a Masters degree in Teaching from the University of Portland. She joined the K-1 team last year, which marked her first year teaching, and found that Trillium was a great match for her teaching philosophy, and desire to work in public schools. She loves the creativity and independence that the charter allows her, and is excited to pick up where she left off in revolutionizing our math curriculum.

Erika puts a lot of effort into learning the way people think and feel, and especially resonates with this age group. She believes teaching K-1 makes her kinder, calmer, and more curious. Some things she’s curious about: riding bikes, exploring outdoor places, creative writing, amateur puppetry, live music and comedy.
