Ms. Erika Rerych

Welcome to Language Arts! In an environment where confidence is amplified, student individuality shapes a positive classroom community committed to tolerance. Like chameleons, we will work collaboratively to blaze the college and career readiness trails, while demonstrating independence towards each capacity of the literate individual.

As a proud Maverick, I value making genuine connections with students plus all stakeholders in the Murphy school community!  

Additionally, I authentically infuse my diverse work experiences from mass communications and the competitive dance world with education. I graduated from North Central College in 2007, yet earned my master’s degree in Multicultural Teaching and Learning from DePaul University in 2009. My passion for lifelong learning led me to complete 47 postgraduate hours. Committed to AVID WICOR strategies, I also believe writers are readers first. 


Rita Pierson once said, “Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.”
