Hello! My name is Eryn Dillard and I am excited to be back at Woods for another great year in second grade. Here are few things about me: I grew up in the beautiful bluffs of La Crosse, Wisconsin, but have spent most of my recent years living in Iowa City, Iowa - home of the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!). This is where I earned my BA in Elementary Education. I also received my endorsement in Special Education and a Spanish Minor. My husband, Jake, began his program at UNC last year which is what brought us to the Chapel Hill area! So far, we have loved exploring North Carolina and adding our precious pup Clover to the family! When I am not at school you can probably find me outside or in my kitchen! I love spending time being active and enjoying the natural world or cooking up a new recipe! I am currently working towards getting my NC environmental education certificate.
I believe education should be rooted in strong relationships and community. It is important to me to foster an environment that is safe and fun, yet challenges students. I love coming alongside and watching them discover their own unique voice, engage with learning, and grow their confidence! I am passionate about doing everything I can to help students find the joy in learning and experience success!
