Hello, my name is Erika Strahan. I teach Third Grade here at Merritt Elementary. I went to college at the University of North Dakota (Go Sioux), where I studied Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I did my student teaching here at Merritt Elementary with the wonderful, Mrs. Melissa Briski. I knew from the moment I started my journey with her, that Merritt was were I wanted a classroom of my own.
I love my job as a teacher. I get to spend my days, interacting with the most amazing kids. Even though I am the teacher, my students are constantly teaching me a thing or two about life and a bit about technology. My classroom motto is BE KIND. This is where I add a lot of life skills and manners into my everyday teaching.
I have integrated flexible seating into my classroom environment and my students and I are loving it! I am always up for new ideas and changing things around to meet the needs of different classes.
