Welcome to 4ES!
My name is Erica Smith and I will be teaching 4th grade Humanities (reading and language arts) at Sunrise! This year will be my 9th year teaching and my third year teaching 4th grade in the Anoka-Hennepin School District! I grew up in Shoreview, Minnesota and attended the University of Minnesota for both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees. After graduating I moved to Altoona, Iowa where I taught 5th grade for six years. I met my husband in Iowa and was thrilled when we moved back to Minnesota. My husband and I live in Coon Rapids with our Cavalier mix dog, Haddie. In my free time I love to read, run, spend time on the lake, and be with my family and friends.
Pam Taylor and I will be teaching partners! Your student will go to Mrs. Taylor for math and science. When they are with me they will have reading and language arts. Mrs. Taylor and I collaborate daily to make sure we are supporting our students in the best possible ways. We are excited for 4th grade at Sunrise Elementary! Thank you for supporting your student's education!
