About

Hi I’m Erin, I am an educator and artist, and photographer, living and working in Southern California.  I have a BFA from Arizona State University, an MA in Teaching from Chapman University, and an MA in Education also from Chapman University.

I am a Southern California girl through and through and love all things Ocean related.  I was born in Hollywood and raised in the OC, Huntington Beach: AKA Surf City, USA.

My passion is for teaching.  In my classroom I create an atmosphere of community.  Community to me, means bringing together the knowledge and skills that students will need to succeed in education, and playing an integral part as a teacher is passing this knowledge on leading to fulfillment of their personal goals in life.  I want to inspire my students to yearn for learning and knowledge, to develop a life long love of learning.  I want my students to grow rich academically, socially, and emotionally in an atmosphere that is stimulating.  I want my students to know that we all have ups and downs, but just like a wave in the ocean, up or down we still move forward as we strive to reach our beach.  I take great pride in being a teacher, and I look forward to the start of each new coming year.

I hope through this blog to be able to discuss education philosophy, currently within the world of education.  How we are using these new, and recycled theories in our daily classrooms.  I want to discuss who we are and what makes us want to teach; the whole teacher, in and outside the classroom.

I hope that you join me on this journey of seeking to become the best educator that I can.

Welcome to my beach.

Erin
