About Erin

Erin is originally from Birmingham, AL and lived here 2014-15, but moved back in earlier this year. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of Alabama and a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate obtained at PSU in 2015. She started teaching English to grades Kindergarten through 10th grade in Seoul , South Korea then continued teaching in Ho Chi Minh City to 2nd and 3rd graders, as well as an independent class of business English to a group of computer professionals.

She likes to engage students by tapping into their creative interests. She started Unboxed Writing Co. in April 2018 in order to start creative writing programming for youth that focuses on writing, drawing, performance, and production in order to expose children to different art forms. As a poet, she remembers growing up as a kid and feeling different. It wasn’t until finding language that she began finding her own way to connect to others and really develop into collaborating and communicating within the community.
Erin’s got fire under my feet so she likes to keep moving and traveling for fun. She loves consuming art: poetry, theater, visual art, and also loves to DANCE!
