Hello! I am Erika Chisholm, and I am excited to be your teacher this year at Saint Anthony Park Elementary! This is my 12th year teaching in Saint Paul where I have taught 4th grade, 5th grade, and 5th grade English language.
My husband Caleb, who is a high school math teacher, and I live in Saint Paul with our puppy, Koda. When I am not in school, you can find me enjoying walks around Como Lake, reading mysteries, watching detective shows, spending time with my friends and family, trying new foods, being outside, and watching sports.
Fifth grade ROCKS and we need YOU! To help make this year AWESOME, we need you to: share your strengths, talents, and ideas with us; collaborate (We work together a lot!); be curious and kind; make mistakes, then use them to learn and grow; work hard and playfully; and be you!
As your teacher, I will: create a safe and encouraging environment for you; work hard to make learning fun, interesting, and challenging; listen sincerely to you; help you celebrate your growth and success; support you when it's tough; and give you my best every day.
