My name is Erica Herron. I’ve been teaching since 2002. I earned my bachelor degree from University of Wisconsin-Parkside and my masters degree of Instructional Technology from Cardinal Stritch University. I taught at Vernon elementary school for 10 years and Lance middle school for 5 years. I truly enjoyed both my teaching experiences. I look forward to coming back to elementary and teaching art. My goal is to build student’s knowledge in art through giving them experiences with different art mediums and exposing them to art history. Teaching children is my passion and I love to see them blossom. When I’m not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a wonderful husband and two adult children, 27 and 22, my 2 dogs. My 27 year old is a special education teacher living in Houston Texas and my 22 is finishing his last year in college at St. Cloud State University. I look forward to a wonderful teaching year at Forest Park.
