Mrs. Erica Emmerling
This is my first year at Ballentine and I am thrilled to be a BES Bear! I am looking forward to working with children and assisting their needs in reading. This is my 11th year teaching. I have taught K5, First Grade, and Second Grade. I love teaching reading and watching students grow each year. I am a product of Lexington 5 schools! I went to Nursery Road Elementary, Irmo Middle, and Irmo High. I received my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Winthrop University in 2008. I received my Master's Degree in Educational Technology from Nova Southeastern Univerisity in 2011. I received my Read to Succeed endorsement in the summer of 2018. I am a certified Literacy teacher.
I am from Columbia, SC. My husband, Carl and I have one beautiful daughter. Her name is Lyla and she's 16 months old. We have 2 chihuahuas, Gus and Gabby. I love to spend time with my family and pull for the Carolina Gamecocks!
