Miss Haehl

Hello! Welcome! I am Ms. Erika Haehl and this will be my 15th year teaching! This is my 4th year here at Union Park, two of the years being in 6th grade (So I have had many of your students already:) Before Union Park, I taught at Arrowhead Elementary for 3 years. I also taught in the Washington Elementary School District, at Mountain View Elementary. I taught Kinder, 5th grade, 6th grade, and 7th grade so far. I absolutely LOVE ELA and am so excited to be in 8th grade again this year and can’t wait to continue this journey with all of you!

I went to ASU West and graduated with my B.S. in Elementary Education in 2009. In my 7th year of teaching, I decided I wanted to pour more of my focus into my favorite subjects; reading and writing, so I went ahead and took the middle school endorsement test for middle school ELA. In my 9th year of teaching, I pushed myself even further and started the process of becoming a Nationally Board Certification in Early Adolescence (12-14 year old's). I hope to be able to soon say I am an NBCT teacher. I am always going to be a learner first, which I believe is part of why I am good at what I do :)

Outside of teaching, I love to read. This year, I have already read 23 books and plan on reading 60 by the end of the year. I also enjoy writing personal narratives and poetry. We will have a lot of time to do both in my class :) I also spend as much time as I can with my family, especially the littlest ones who call me auntie. I am an avid hiker, traveler, and coffee drinker. My favorite color is purple and I am a huge Disney fan.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! We are going to have a great year!
