Hello! I'm Erin Hicks and I am the upper elementary Montessori teacher at Johnson Elementary. This is my first year teaching at Johnson and my first year teaching Montessori. I previously taught third grade in the Apache Junction Unified School District in a traditional classroom setting. I stepped out of the classroom to be a stay at home parent while my two boys were little. As I researched the types of educational settings Mesa had to offer, I really felt that Montessori was the best place for my children. Montessori education has been such wonderful experience for our family. I volunteered many hours in the Montessori classrooms as well as substitute taught. Now that both my boys have been in school full time, I decided to return to teaching full time. I knew Montessori was where I wanted to be and I am so thrilled to be here!

A little about me...

I was born in the small town of Worland, Wyoming and moved to Arizona when I was young child. Although, I spent most of my time in Arizona, I spent most of my summers in Wyoming at my grandparent's home and my great-aunt's ranch.  I graduated from Mountain View High School. I married my high school sweet heart, Dave, who is a fire fighter/ paramedic with city of Mesa. My son Colin is a 5th grader at the Mesa Academy and Tommy is a 2nd grader here at Johnson Montessori. We have dog named Maggie and a mischievous cat named Franklin. I love the outdoors. In my free-time I am usually hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, backpacking, or camping with friends and family. I also love photography and spent many years as a portrait photographer. I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter, which won't be hard to miss if you walk around my classroom.

Thanks for stopping by!
