Mrs. Erin Ridgeway
Hi! My name is Erin Ridgeway and I moved to New Bern from Virginia a year ago. My husband is a New Bern native so we are excited to be back in his hometown. We are expecting our first child in December! I went to Radford University and received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education PreK-6 and my master's degree in Special Education. I spent the last 3 years as a Special Education teacher in Roanoke, Virginia where I worked with first, third, fourth and fifth graders. I was also a Title 1 teacher for a year. In my free time I enjoy being on the water, fishing, walking our dog, and exploring the area. Last year at Brinson, I was a part of the Title 1 team and facilitated the STEM lab. This year, I am excited to be part of the third grade team! I love watching children's light bulbs go off and helping them find a love of learning.
