Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings Farnsworth Aerospace PreK-4 Families!
My name is Amanda Erickson and I am excited about partnering with you and your family in our Kindergarten classroom.
Education and Teaching
I started teaching in 2007 and I joined Saint Paul Public Schools in 2012. I have experience teaching Kindergarten, First, Second and Inquiry Specialists (K-3 Social Studies and Science). I received my teaching degree and Masters from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
My husband and I have two sons, Emmett and Eli. As a family we love to be outside, listen to music, read books, walk our dog, Piper and cook dinners together. We also have a cat named Miles. Our favorite season is Fall because we love the changing colors and cooler weather.
Hopes and Dreams
The relationship between family and school is so important in a child’s education and success. I want to reach students wholly by supporting them socially and emotionally. I want students to have fun with learning, navigate and succeed in new challenges and build community in my classroom. I appreciate any feedback and communication from parents or guardians about how we can provide the best school experience for everyone. Together we can make a difference.
