Welcome! My name is Erin Harms. I received an Early Childhood/Elementary degree with a minor in Literacy at the University of Northern Iowa. This will be my 5th year at Carlisle Elementary. I am in my third year of teaching 1st Grade. Before teaching 1st Grade, I taught two years of Kindergarten. I am so excited to meet you and your kiddos! Our school year will be different this year, but I am excited to be on this learning journey with you and your child!
When I'm not teaching, I like spending quality time with family and friends at local coffee shops and outdoors. This school year I will be balancing planning a wedding during covid with teaching! I got engaged this summer and we are planning our wedding for March, whatever that may look like! I enjoy reading books, baking, and hiking in beautiful places. I spend my days with the littles and then on Wednesday nights, I enjoy hanging out with junior high and high school students through my local church. Investing in the next generation is something that brings me a lot of joy and purpose!
Please let me know if I can answer any questions - bridging the school to home gap is important to me. We are partners in your children's education. I look forward to working with you!
