About The TeacherHello!! I am Mrs. Erika Feerer (pronounced "fear-er," or just "fear"). Thank you for allowing me to teach your child this year! We will learn and grow together. I am entering into my seventh year of teaching at Lagos and my eleventh year of teaching all together. I taught 2nd grade for four years in Albuquerque, NM before moving to Phoenix and beginning my career at Lagos. This is my 8th year at Lagos teaching 1st grade and this is my 6th year as an English teacher in our Dual Language program.
My additional past experience in education includes being a substitute teacher for two and a half years and a preschool teacher for a year and a half. I really enjoy teaching first grade and love watching them discover new concepts.
I graduated in December 2009 with a Masters of Arts in Elementary Education. My undergraduate degree is a Bachelors of Business Administration with a Concentration in Travel and Tourism. I worked in the hotel industry for three years prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom and then entering into the field of education. I have been married for 25 years and we have two children who both attended Lagos for a period of time. Although they are now grown, they are my life and I love spending time with them. My daughter attends NAU and my son is starting ASU.A few fun facts about me:
- I worked in the Magic Kingdom at Disney World in 1992 and graduated with my "Ducktorate" from Disney University
- I met President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton and had my picture taken with the President in 1996
- We hosted an exchange student from Germany for one year and then my son spent a year in Germany as an exchange student
- I was an extra (a lady of temperance) in the movie The Lone Ranger...with Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp :)
