Erica Hendrickson

Parkside School Elementary Teacher

It's been incredible working for the Wautoma Area School District and a privilege to teach the amazing students within our community. WASD is a place that values the whole child, placing a focus on both academic and character education. It is inspiring to be surrounded by other educators, administrators, and support staff, who are dedicated in helping each individual student be successful, grow, and learn. I've always felt encouraged to take instructional risks that support student success and there are countless opportunities to grow professionally making WASD a great place to work. I'm proud to work for WASD and it's hard for me to imagine working anywhere else.
