Ms. Gerik

Welcome! I am thrilled to be at Amphitheater High School in Tucson after recently moving from Charlotte, North Carolina. I teach English 10 Mentor 2.0 and English 9 and can be found in Room 204.

Defining Moment in Education: Junior year of high school, I had an amazing English teacher named Mr. Crisp. He was the first teacher that made a genuine effort to connect to his students on their level and engage them in an interesting way in the classroom. The second would be my former Culinary Teacher, Chef Weih. He has since retired, but the amount of drive and passion that he had for his students was phenomenal. Without these two amazing people in my school career, I would not be here. They allowed me to see my own potential and pushed me to want to show other students the way.

Core Educational Belief: Every student, if given the opportunity, has the ability to learn and grow.

Prior Experience: I completed my student internship at Weddington High School in Charlotte, North Carolina and taught English for one year at East Mecklenburg High School in CMS. There, I taught 10th and 12th grade English.
