Welcome to Mrs. Erickson's Second Grade Class! My name is Grace Erickson and I began teaching at Tarwater in 2018. I am excited to be entering my 8th year of teaching.

My Education and Professional Background

After graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in elementary education, I taught for two years in Tucson. I decided it was time for a change and moved to Phoenix! I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. I am so excited to teach second grade at Tarwater! It will be a wonderful year!

My Educational Philosophy

In my classroom, I believe it is important for my students to grow in many ways. Of course, we focus on the academics. In addition, my students learn how to be kind, respectful, and responsible third graders. We have a positive classroom community where students acknowledge when others are kind. They learn to work as a team and problem solve together. We sing, dance, and move while we are learning new concepts. I use flexible seating to ensure that each child is able to work comfortably and effectively. Every child learns in a unique way and I try very hard to meet the needs of each child.
