Erin Minarsch

Hi, I'm Erin. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a B.A. in Liberal Studies. After I graduated, I went back to school to obtain my Master's in Elementary Education, as well as my California teaching credential. I have been an educator for seven years and this is my fifth year teaching, 5th grade. I have loved every position and grade that I've taught, but 5th grade definitely has a special place in my heart. My classroom community is strong, where everyone belongs and has a special job. My favorite subject to teach is science and I love making lessons more hands-on. When I'm not teaching my "Minarsch-mallows"(that's what I call my students), I am traveling with my husband (Mr. Minarsch) to the mountains with our two dogs, Chance, and Peanut. We love to go fishing, hiking, and dirt-bike riding.
