Hi! My name is Erin Watkins and I’m a teacher with the Brandon School Division. I’ve had a variety of teaching experiences from northern to southern Manitoba and in Belgium. My career has been primarily in early years, with a literacy focus. I have taught Reading Recovery, which is an intensive one-to-one literacy program for struggling grade one students. In addition to this program, I’ve taught grade two, literacy support, an enrichment program and basic French. I’m currently a teacher librarian, which is why I’m excited to start a literacy program at Baby Bump.
This past year, my husband, Christopher, and I were excited to introduce to the world our son, Aleksander. I thought that with my love of literacy and a new baby, it would be nice to share my love of reading and my teaching tips with others as well as meet new people.
