Math teacher Matt Breen said Erickson is a tremendous resource, especially in the realm of instructional research.
“I can always go to him and ask him advice about books on how to improve classroom instruction,” Breen said. “Usually, he either has read the book or knows the authors. I really trust him.”
Erickson said he’s not ready to unveil a suite of changes at the high school this year. Instead, he’s most excited about seeing some of the district’s new programs roll out.
That includes the Vantage program, which provides real-life work experiences for students who earn credits while they work with local companies. Also on tap is the expansion of the district’s iPad program, which will put tablet computers in the hands of students in eighth through 11th grades.
“Honestly, I’m just ready for the kids to get here,” he said.
