My name is Erica LaRue and I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher this year. This is my 7th year teaching at Ellendale. I have spent the last 5 years in 1st grade, and am now going back to resource, where I spent my first year! I graduated from the University of Memphis in May 2011 with a dual license in Elementary and Special Education. I then went on to earn my M.Ed in Special Education with a specialization in Autism Spectrum Disorders from Arizona State University. I love my dogs, being outdoors, exploring Memphis, cooking, and everything Memphis Tigers and Grizzlies related! I look forward to working with you all throughout the year, and to what I am certain will be a fantastic year!
