Greetings. My name is Erin Bleier, and I will be teaching your child English III. I am married to Asa Bleier, a local builder; together we raise two children. My son, Harlan is nine; my daughter, Lilah is six. Both kids attend Art Space and we love that school! Free time is scarce at my house (as many of you can relate), but I do manage to get in some. I love riding mountain bikes and consider that to one of my passions in life. I also like to refurbish antique furniture, I like any yoga/exercise, and I also enjoy local foods.
As for my teaching style--your child will find my class challenging yet fun. I operate with strict guidelines that allow students the freedom to explore literature in a nurturing environment. I get them thinking critically while they are encouraged to question and examine the world around them. I treat all student the way I would want my own children to be treated by another teacher. I strive to creat a classrrom full of mutual respect and an environment where we can laugh at ourselves. Rest assured, I am passionate about my job and eager to help your child advance his/her own learning and prepare for college and the work force.
Please feel free to email me when you want updates on your child's progress. I find that email typically works quite well for parent/teacher contact. Also utilize access to Powerschool to check for grades. If you ever need a conference please email me to schedule one. I look forward to teaching your child this semester and having you involved.
