Hi! I’m Eryn Dillard and I am excited to be back at Woods for another great year. I grew up in beautiful western Wisconsin, but most recently came to Chatham County from Iowa City, Iowa - home of the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!). This is where I earned my BA in Elementary Education as well as received my endorsement in Special Education. This is my eighth year teaching second graders! My husband began his program at UNC in 2018 which is what originally brought us to the Chapel Hill area. We love being North Carolina transplants! 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 love supporting students as they discover their own unique voice and grow their confidence. I am passionate about helping students find the joy in learning and experience success as they build lifelong skills.
