TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Erik and I (husband and wife) are both graduates of Lesley University. Erik taught fifth grade at Phoenix Country Day School. I taught first, fourth, fifth, and sixth grades at four different schools: Nadaburg Elementary - Wittmann, AZ, Dexheim Elementary - Germany, Aschaffenburg Elementary - Germany, Phoenix Country Day School, and Kent Denver School. Erik went on to build his career as a motivational speaker, author, and adventurer. He has climbed the "seven summits, including Everest. Recently, he solo-kayaked the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Here's a success story from someone who used our curriculum guide. "I am a high school special education teacher in Massachusetts. The curriculum guide is an extremely beneficial tool in teaching English Language Arts. My class is a language based English class that provides instruction to students with Reading and/or Writing Disabilities. The curriculum guide makes a very easy way to separate the book into three distinct parts, allowing for appropriate time for tests and/or quizzes. It also gives great ideas for asking questions and beginning class discussion both prior as well as after reading the sections. This allows students to be more insightful and as well as offer an opportunity to be reflective. The guide also gives great ideas for Projects in the areas of Writing, Research and Geography. It continues to connect the book to the documentaries and movie and offers project ideas for further learning. The ideas for prompting students to experience the world without sight are excellent and very appropriate for all ages. Lastly, additional research resources are provided allowing teachers to create their own WebQuests. The curriculum guide makes reading this exciting and motivating book easier to teach. It is a valuable tool that came much appreciated."

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Erik has received the ESPY, Nike’s Casey Martin Award, and the Helen Keller Lifetime Achievement award. He’s appeared on NBC’s Today Show and Nightly News, Oprah, Good Morning America, Nightline, and the Tonight Show. He was featured on the cover of Time, Outside, and Climbing magazines. Erik has also carried torches for both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. In 2017, Erik was named one of "The 25 Most Adventurous Men of the Past 25 Years" by Men's Journal.
