Ms. Erika Florez
Hi, Stinson Stars!
My name is Erika Florez and I am so excited about beginning another school year at Stinson Elementary! I have been teaching at Stinson Elementary since 2016. I was named Stinson's Teacher of the Year for 2022-2023. I love teaching kindergarten because I get to witness so much joy that comes with the many fun "firsts" that they will get to experience. My goal for each student at the beginning of every year is to love school and to enjoy the process of learning new things. This is the beginning of a long journey for them, and I want them to see how wonderful all of the fun, exciting, challenging and new things that come with being in school. Kindergarten is so magical and I can't wait to be a part of their journey as a Stinson Star! I know it will be a great year together!
I graduated from Texas A&M-Commerce and earned a Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in Early Childhood-6th grade and English as a Second Language. I am also certified in the Science of Teaching Reading.
When I'm not in the classroom, I am with my daughter, our family and friends. I love to be outside playing with her and our dog, attending dance classes, baking, going shopping and getting to experience new things. I can't wait to get to know my students and their families this year. I am excited about having another successful year in Kindergarten!
