Hi! My name is Erica Van Leer (previously Erica Hale), and I will be teaching first grade at Scott Elementary. I am so thankful for the opportunity to return to the elementary school I attended to pursue my passion in teaching. I graduated from the University of Southern Indiana with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. My goal as a teacher is to make sure each student performs to the best of their ability while achieving high growth. I am so excited to be a Tiger again, and I look forward to working with the students, parents, and faculty at Scott!
