I'm Erica Phillips. This will be my second year teaching first grade at Williams and my sixth year teaching in Pittsfield. Before that I taught kindergarten in North Adams. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from MCLA and my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Western New England University.
Here is a bit about me. I was born and raised in the Berkshires and I am a former Williams student . I live locally with my husband, daughter and dog. I love to spend time with my family and travel to different places. Two of my favorite places to visit are New York City and Narragansett Beach.
It is my goal this year to help your child grow academically and socially. My hope is to instill a love of learning in my students and foster their creativity. It is going to be a great year in first grade!
