Erika Wainman

Hello-My name is Erika Wainman.  This will be my 11th year teaching, 18th year in Education and 4th year teaching 2nd grade.  I’m originally from NW Indiana and graduated from Indiana University Bloomington in 1995.  I moved to AZ the summer of 1995 but joined the United States Air Force after 9/11.  I was stationed in Albuquerque, NM and worked as a Military Police Officer for 3.5 years.  I have a son, Donovan who will be in 8th grade at Pueblo Middle School.  We also have an awesome Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, Maggie.  In my free time I enjoy going to the movies, hiking, festivals, farmer’s markets, and shopping for antiques.  I also love Glitter!

I have an open-door policy in my classroom.  I want parents to feel comfortable being an active participant in their child’s education.  My classroom environment is set up to make every child feel safe, motivated, and respected.  It is my personal goal to ensure school is fun while instilling the love of learning.  My behavior management is centered around a class economy, while my teaching strategies are focused around Bloom’s Taxonomy, Interactive Notebooks, Thinking Maps, Spalding and Higher Level Thinking.  I am confident by the end of the year your student will be: resourceful, responsible, and confident.

I look forward to having a fantastic year!
