“If you haven’t met or been in the company of Erica, then you are missing out on a great deal of JOY! She is full of life, adventure and passion whether in the classroom, dance studio or the gym. She has a strong work ethic and a genuine desire to see students and teachers excel. She looks to captivate and empower others to take charge of their own success. She is an inspiration and sincerely wants the best for students and co-workers. With fidelity, she brings solutions to the table and wastes no time with implementation. Erica and I worked side by side as teachers and friends and sometimes when you are a good teacher, it is taken for granted by others that good teachers do not need encouragement and/or benefit from a pat on the back. When I met Erica, all of that changed. She acknowledged my effort and my struggles, and encouraged me to keep focusing on the positives. Erica is a good person with a good heart, and has a natural talent to encourage and motivate others. Get to know her, and add a little more happiness and fullness to your life.”
~Cathy Darden, 6th Grade Chair & Language Arts Teacher, NC
