My name is Erika Rodriguez and I will be teaching Third Grade for the second time here at the amazing Tippin Elementary School. I am thrilled to be a part of the staff this school year and being your child’s teacher. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I graduated from University of Puerto Rico in 2006. I also taught there for two years. Then I moved to the States in 2009 to pursue an education degree. Successfully completed the Alternative Certification Teaching Program in Dallas, Texas, where I taught for four years. I also have a Master’s Degree in Education/Spanish from the University of Granada, Spain. All of these experiences have enriched my professional career enabling me with tools, knowledge and strategies that will help students achieve academic success. I enjoy teaching and have a passion in this field. Teaching is such a rewarding career and the satisfaction of knowing that I can be a part of student’s achieving success in the present and future fills my heart tremendously.
I want to be a light in kids lives.
Let's have a great year!!
