Erica Christina Little
Erica Christina Little teaches science at Matthew W. Gilbert Middle School, the only college and career magnet middle school in the Duval County School System in Jacksonville, Florida. More than 90% of her students receive free or reduced price lunch and the school’s mission is to create a culture of achievement for all of these students through tools like the International Baccalaureate program and a new all boys STEM Academy. Erica serves as co-team leader for the science department and has created a mentor group for female students in grades 6-8. Erica hopes to become an urban school principal and open her own school for young African-American female students.
