Hi, my name is Erica aka Ericamos aka TheSkoolTeacher aka Pedora. I never had any nicknames growing up, so it’s fitting that I now have too many.
When I’m not busy being unemployed due to budget cuts and a small job market, I teach. I’m big into camping (both in the wild and at structured camp facilities) and have recently jumped into the world of camp directing at my own childhood camp. It is definitely a new experience taking on the ultimate leadership role of a camp rather than being a pesky, carefree camper.
I’ve always been one to march to my own beat, and in 2009, I was lucky enough to find my match in Greg; someone who came with his own trumpeter that kept my beat perfectly! Together, we live in “The Friendly City” of Lomita, California, where we spend our days being awesomely nice to everyone.
I started this blog after being laid off by my school district and finding myself hopelessly unemployed. I’m generally a quiet individual, and prefer to hear other people’s stories than tell my own, so I decided to use this platform to “speak up.” It’s mostly a collection of stories from my past, and thoughts about my current life. I try to keep it light and somewhat humorous since I enjoy bringing happiness to others. (I’m from The Friendly City, remember?!)
Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to follow me on Facebook, and keep track of my random thoughts through Twitter @TheSkoolTeacher! Or, you know, you could also click on one or more of the “Follow Me” buttons at the upper right side of this page. Look at me making it easy for you!
