    Grade / Subject: 3rd


    I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Erica Chapman and I am honored to be your child’s 3rd grade teacher this year. This is going to be my sixth year of teaching at RHME and I am looking forward to a fun-filled year.

     I am originally from Springfield, Il. My family and I moved to Hampstead, North Carolina five years ago. I graduated from Benedictine University at Springfield in 2011. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Mathematics, Language Arts, and Social Science.  I fell in love with teaching younger grades!

     I am thirty-five years old and married to my wonderful husband and high school sweetheart, Randy. We have been married for seven years and have one daughter, Jaiden. She will be in eigth grade this year at Surf City Middle School. In my free time I love spending time outdoors and near the ocean.

     I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.

    I believe that communication is the key to a great parent/ teacher relationship.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.  You can send me a note, email me at echapman@duplinschools.net or call me at school.

     I am looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child!
