Mrs. Erica Peake
I am Erica Peake and I love kids! I love them so much, I have chosen to spend many of my days with them, learning and growing together! ;) When I was younger, I would play school in my bedroom for hours. I would make rosters, grade papers, and use my brown bedroom door as a chalkboard to teach my imaginary students. I always knew I had a passion to reach and teach kids.
After I graduated from LEHS in 2005, I pursued a teaching career in middle level education with a focus in English. I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2011...Gooooo Cocks! I started teaching at North Central Middle School in 2011 as the 8th grade writing teacher. I learned so much during my four years there from incredible staff and administration! Then I had the opportunity to work at our church as our children's director for two years, where I learned leadership through a whole new lens! Now, I am back in the district, and our motto at LEMS is understanding hearts and positive attitudes and that is my mission to ignite in our kids!
I am married to a super awesome guy, Travis, and we have a sweet, charismatic, and hard headed three year old named Kolt. He keeps us busy and entertained! We love trips to Edisto, going on evening walks, and eating at San Jose! I am beyond thankful to be a wife, mommy, and teacher! And beyond thankful for the opportunity to teach your child!
P.S. I love Jesus, reading, colorful agendas, cute notebooks, quotes, and exclamation points!!! ;)
