Mrs. Erickson 3rd grade

Mrs. Erickson's 3rd Grade Class Webpage

I’m Mrs. Erickson.

This is my 12th year teaching at Hughes and my 13th year with the district. I have lived in Santa Clara for the last 20 years. I am married to a SCUSD middle school teacher and we have a  wonderful son who is in the 3nd grade & is also in our district. Before I became a teacher I was a caterer who turned cooking school teacher. I eventually found my calling teaching grade school & absolutely love my job! I approach each child as I would hope other educators would approach  my own son. I have learned over the years that ALL children are capable of learning and excelling to their fullest potential once they  feel safe, valued, and respected. I look forward to an amazing year with your children.

Homework Policy

 Homework should reflect and reinforce what was learned in class that day and  should give the kids time to practice . While the content each night is valuable it isn't crucial. What is IMPORTANT is establishing a habit of homework & building personal responsibility. The routine & organizational skills practice will help to support students as they move up in grades


**Should your child forget their homework they will be expected to write down the title of the book they read and for how long, write about something that happened to them that day (minimum of 5 sentences) and perform 5 math problems you make up for them. This falls under  the NO EXCUSE & no tears policy.
