Ms. Erin Maxwell
Welcome to Fifth Grade!
My name is Erin Maxwell, and it is my privilege to be your child's fifth grade teacher!
I graduated in May 2012 from M.S.U. with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementray Education with minors in Language Arts and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (T.E.S.O.L.). I completed my student teaching year in Chicago as part of M.S.U.'s partnership with Chicago Public Schools. Following my student teaching year, I taught Kindergarten and first grade in the city of Chicago. In 2015, I moved back to Michigan to be closer to family and taught third grade in Canton, Michigan for four years. In May 2019, I again graduated from M.S.U. with my Master's Degree in Teaching and Curricuum with a Literacy Specialization. I also earned my K-12 Reading Specialist endorsement. This is my second year teaching fifth grade at Murphy Elementary. Go Mustangs!
I am originally from Troy, Michigan, but my family moved to Okemos over a decade ago. I am engaged to my fiance, Gordon, who is also an M.S.U. alum! Our family loves cheering on the Spartans, traveling, and spending time together.
I am so grateful for your support this year, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be part of the Haslett community!
