Erin has served as Valley's Kindergarten teacher since 2012. She graduated from Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska in the spring of 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. Erin's favorite lesson to teach is the phonics lesson about Q and U. "We have a Q and U wedding to celebrate their 'union' in spelling words together. We have a ceremony and wedding reception to commemorate the lesson. It is so much fun!"
Erin and her husband, Matt, have a daughter, Hadlee, who will be three in November around the time the couple are expecting twins. She loves to go adventuring with her family, read, and hangout with friends and family. Erin and her family attend Immanuel Lutheran Church in Cedar Falls.
Erin says, "The best part of following Jesus is knowing that I am part of a wonderful family, God's family. I know that I am loved by a God that cares for all of His children. I love sharing that with my students."
