About Me

Hi there! My name is Mallery Erickson and I this year I am the 7-8 Newcomer A teacher at Skyline Middle School in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I have taught 5-6 and 6-8 Newcomer A classes in the past.

I am passionate about learning new languages, about cultures and hope to instill this passion into my students.  Growing up, I was fortunate to have been placed into a Spanish Immersion Program in elementary school where half of my day was spent learning math, science, and some language arts in Spanish, and the other half learning Social Studies/History and Language Arts in English. I was an International Baccalaureate candidate in high school, and continued my education at James Madison University. From my experience in the immersion program and in high school, I knew I wanted to teach the same way I learned! In college, I studied abroad at La universidad de Salamanca, in Spain, where I continued my Spanish education, as well as teaching.  I loved traveling all over Europe while I lived in Spain and I love sharing my experiences with my students.  I have a Bachelor of Arts in Modern Foreign Languages and a Master of Arts in Teaching from James Madison University. 

When I'm not teaching, I spend every second with our handsome son, caden, our beautiful daughter, Emerie and my loving husband, Ted Erickson (a P.E. teacher here at SKMS!). I absolutely love teaching, but nothing compares to the love I have for my family and being a mom. Caden and Emerie are our pride and joy!

If you have any questions, concerns or thoughts you'd like to share with me, please feel free to contact me via e-mail at merickson@harrisonburg.k12.va.us, or (540) 434-6862, and I will be sure to respond quickly!
