Miss Erica Allen
My name is Erica Allen. I am blessed to call three places on the Eastern Coast my home: Jacksonville, Wilmington, and New Bern. I was able to stay on ENC for college to attend East Carolina University (Arghhhhh!). At ECU, I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a minor in K-5 Reading. After graduating, I begin my career at VFLE as a long-term sub for 4th and 5th grade. Now, I have been blessed to be in the best grade level with the greatest team going on 5 years now. I absolutely love teaching and being with kids; one thing I love about teaching is seeing my kids grow academically and personally. Being a teacher is such a humbling and exciting experience. I treasure every moment in the classroom and believe in having a happy and fun environment for my students to learn in.
Besides teaching, I love traveling, being on the water, visiting my family and friends, and spending time with my two furbabies. I enjoy traveling and have had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala and England, along with many places in the United States. As I mentioned, I have two furbabies who are so important to me. They are Doler, a poodle, and Barrett, a german short-hairded pointer. I'm sure your child will come home talking about them some days!
