Ms. Erika Spofford

Hello Everyone,

My name is Erika Spofford and this is my 8th year as an ELL teacher at Chelsea Heights! 

Prior to beginning my career as an ELL teacher, I attended the University of Minnesota, Morris, and received a degree in Spanish and Latin American Area Studies. I spent the next four years teaching English in a few different countries; Costa Rica, Mexico, Japan and South Korea. When I returned to the US, I attended graduate school at the University of Minnesota and received a license to teach ELL. 

I am very excited to continue working with the wonderful community of students and staff at Chelsea Heights! Please feel free to email me at if you have any questions!
