Meet the Teacher!
In my classroom your student will learn about and explore different genres of books, practice skills to grow as readers, writers and thinkers and enjoy their third grade year! In third grade we work on students becoming responsible in their work and thinking on a deeper level as they grow throughout the year. We use our reading series "Wonders" to guide us in our lessons and instructions while applying these skills and lessons in our real life experiences. In social studies we focus our studies on Missouri's past, government, regions, and citizens.
My name is Erika Morton. I have been teaching third grade ELA and Social Studies at Farmington since 2013. I graduated from Farmington High School and then graduated Central Methodist University with my Bachelors in Elementary Education. I have been married to my husband, Adam since 2010 and together we have two children, Ty and Leighann. Our family was complete when we got our rescue dog, Barry in 2016 and we love to all spend time together at home playing outside or lounging around the house. When I am not at school I enjoy reading, watching movies, listening to music, drawing, spending time with family and friends.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns. Have a great day!
