Kelly Erickson Bio

Hello, my name is Kelly Erickson and I enjoy reading, nature, singing, my family and teaching. I am a very loyal and dedicated educator. I put my whole heart into the lives of those I am educating and I believe that every child can learn. I love making learning fun and I am excited to be a part of the wonderful Burks family!I am originally from Oklahoma, but my heart lies in Texas now! I grew up in Bixby, Oklahoma, but moved many times after getting married to my wonderful husband, Russ. One place we lived was Amarillo where I taught Kindergarten for five years, then we moved to McKinney to live closer to family, and I taught three years of First-grade in Richardson ISD. I have two loving daughters, Courtney and Rebecca, and one fur baby, Leo. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Child Psychology with an emphasis on Child and Family Development in 1995 and completed my Alternative Certification at WTAMU in 2009. My family means the world to me and I treat every child that comes into my classroom as family; after all, we spend a year together and those memories will last a lifetime! Teaching is my passion and I can’t wait to start another year!
