My name is Erica Smith.  I am blessed to call three places on the Eastern Coast my home: Jacksonville, Wilmington, and New Bern.   I was able to stay on ENC for college to attend East Carolina University (Arghh!).  At ECU, I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a minor in K-5 Reading.  After graduating, I begin my teaching career at VFLE.  While teaching at VFLE, I have taught 3rd and 4th grades.  I am very excited to start this new journey in first grade!  I absolutely love teaching and being with kids; one thing I love about teaching is seeing my kids grow academically and personally.  Being a teacher is such a humbling and exciting experience.  I treasure every moment in the classroom and believe in having a happy and fun environment for my students to learn in.

Besides teaching, I love traveling, being on the water, visiting my family and friends, and spending time with my six furbabies.  I enjoy traveling and have had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala and England, along with many places in the United States.  As I mentioned, I have 6 furbabies who are so important to me.  I'm sure your child will come home talking about them some days!
