B.S. in Spanish, Georgetown University; M.F.A in Poetry from the New School; M.A. in English Education from New York University. Erica is a former literacy coach and is presently an English language arts teacher at Vanguard High School in Manhattan, New York.

Erica aspires to support schools in developing and sustaining educational equity, creating rich curricular opportunities and meaningful performances of understanding for all. She would like to collaborate with communities in deepening democratic practice.
