Erin traces the beginning of her passion for education back to her days as a Phillips Academy student, during which she served as a Math and Spanish peer tutor in Graham House.  After graduating from Brown University with a degree in Comparative Literature, she returned to P.A. to launch her official teaching career as a Teaching Fellow in Spanish. She continued teaching foreign languages for the next decade, including Spanish at Concord Academy and English in Spain and Costa Rica.  Her experiences inspired her to pursue Master and Doctoral degrees from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she focused on the intersections between pedagogy, technology, adult learning, and y. Erin took her ideas to the University of Wisconsin, where she developed and researched online programs that helped faculty to improve instruction in online, blended and face-to-face environments. But her East Coast and prep school roots were too solid, and after 3+ years in Madison, she returned in April, 2014 to become the Academy’s first Associate Director of Educational Initiatives. In this role, Erin is providing strategic direction, planning, consultation and support to promote students’ learning through the pedagogically sound incorporation of technologies into the teaching and learning process.
