Hello! My name is Erin LaFlamme. This is my eleventh year teaching for Jefferson City School District, and my first year as the STEM Instructional Coach at Thorpe Gordon STEM Academy. I am so excited to be a part of this team; it is going to be a year full of chasing our curiosity and exploring the world around us. I cannot wait to get started!
When I am at home, I enjoy spending time with my husband Jeremey. We have been married 22 years and have two kids, Madeline and Benjamin. Madeline is in college and Benjamin attends Capital City High School. Madeline loves to read... she also loves science and hopes to be in that career field when she graduates. Benjamin is currently enjoying the Project Lead the Way Engineering Track, he hopes to become an engineer when he goes to college. Our family loves to explore, experience adventures, and create memories of a lifetime together. Oh, and EAT - our family loves trying new kinds of delicious food. As my husband would say, "One empanada is NEVER enough!"
I love animals and have two cats named Pickles and Olive, and two dogs named Captain Jack Sparrow and Henry. They are constantly chasing each other and playing all over our house, their silliness always makes me laugh. I'm a HUGE SyFy and Fantasy fan. I love all of it - especially Star Trek, Star Wars, and Harry Potter. Also, I love to sing and dance ~ even though I have zero rhythm, so make sure to bring your 'moves' to school every day!
This school year is going to be busy and full of new and interesting things to learn. Every student has magic inside them and it's our job as teachers and parents to allow that magic to flourish and grow. Let’s get started!!
