MYSS TC Spotlight: Miss Erika

Our next featured Teacher Counselor is Miss Erika! This is Miss Erika’s second summer with us at MYSS. This yoga lover rolls on into camp in her fun, bright red, topless car every day and let’s the breeze running through her hair amp her up for the day ahead with us. In his own words… 

 

“My name is Miss Erika, and I have a bachelor’s in fine arts/ Visual Arts and master’s in early childhood education with a NY certificate. I have been working in the private preschool settings since 2004, where I applied my art background as well as teaching experiences. This past year I had the pleasure of working in an elementary school as a Teacher’s Assistant, in Grades 2, 3, 4, and Kindergarten. I am continuing my education and getting certified in NJ to teach full time in a public school.

In my spare time, I love painting with acrylics on a variety of surfaces, such as wood, plexiglass, and different sized canvases. My happy place is on the beach, listening to the waves and finding a quiet time to relax and meditate.

I love teaching the children in the water, watching them build their confidence with basic skills as well as having fun while swimming and learning.”
