My name is Erica Fong and I am a fifth grade teacher at Churchill. I can't WAIT to meet all of my fifth graders and get started with our exciting year!
I grew up in a western suburb of Chicago and have just moved back to the area to be closer to family and start my teaching career. I graduated with my Masters of Education from the University of Minnesota where I also completed my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education.
A little more about me...
- This is my second year at Churchill
- I have taught in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms. I also have worked with kids in summer camps, swim lessons, and in Spain
- Some of my hobbies are baking, anything crafty/creative, and working out (Mostly weight training -running is not my friend!)
- I speak Spanish - I have been learning since 6th grade and it's not perfect but I would love to practice with any families or students :)
I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach in the wonderful community of Homewood and I am looking forward to lots of growth in my students, myself, and this school!
