My name is Erica Seymour. I am your child's third grade teacher and am excited to experience this year with you. This year is my first year teaching third grade at Esperanza. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child. Previously, I taught preschool for 7 years and Dual Language Kindergarten at Norte Elementary for a short time. My student teaching and interships were in the Kyrene School District. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University.
I am an Arizona native. I grew up in a big family in Tempe. In October, I married my high school sweetheart after a long engagement due to COVID. Our house is full of pets, two dogs and three turtles. In my free time I enjoy listening to music, eating rocky road ice cream, going to Disneyland, and traveling with my husband.
This year, students will be engaged in hands on and inquiry learning. I believe children learn best when they feel safe and challenged.
I am proud to be a part of your child's education this year.
