Hello there! My name is Erika Kunders and this is my first year teaching kindergarten at McBride Elementary.  My previous teaching experience was in Rainier, Oregon, teaching kindergarten for 6 years.  I am so happy to be close to  home in St. Helens at McBride so I can build a connection with my community. 


Oregon State University

Concordia University- Masters of Arts in Teaching

Lewis and Clark College- Reading Endorsement


I'm excited to meet your child and family and learn about you.  My classroom will be one where your child will learn to express their learning, wonderings, feelings and ideas.  I am so happy and anxious to hear about their experiences, passions and interests.  We will build a community of learners and explorers in our room, while also treating eachother like a member of a kindergarten family. 


Speaking of family, I am so glad that my children will be attending McBride right along side me.  My daughter, Rae-Anne, starts kindergarten this year and my son, Benjamin, is two years old and will be starting preschool next year.  My husband, Aaron, works for the City of St. Helens.  We've been married for 13 years.  Our interests are college football, Dodgers baseball games, traveling with our trailer around the Pacific Northwest, outdoor activities, gardening and time with our family.  My personal interests are scrapbooking, crafting, baking, hiking, walking, reading, journaling, photography and TEACHING! 


I'm looking forward to a great new year of teaching!  Let's go, Mustangs!
