What Erin finds most meaningful in her profession: It is truly special to work with students as they move through the critical stages of identity development in the teenage years. To be in close relationships with young people while I help them discover the beautiful revelations of mathematics — that is a truly special profession.”

Erin’s favorite spot on campus: The whole campus is amazing, but I especially love the creek, the food gardens, the playgrounds, and the math office.”
