Mrs. Erin Ridgeway

My name is Erin Ridgeway and I am a Virginia native. This is my 5th year at Brinson and I am excited to be a part of the 2nd grade team again this year. Upon arriving at BME in 2017, I was a Title 1/ STEM teacher and then taught 3rd grade the following school year. Prior to moving to New Bern in 2017, I was a Special Education (EC) teacher in Virginia. My husband is a New Bern native. Our son will be 3 in November and in July we welcomed a baby girl! We have a Golden Retriever named Toby and a Black Lab named Gunner. We enjoy being on the water and love being parents. I am a fourth generation teacher and love teaching. I am so excited to teach and learn from my students.
