Hello and welcome to East Clayton Elementary School! My name is Erika Wade and I am a first grade teacher at ECES! This is my 10th year teaching first grade and I hope you love it as much as I do! A little bit about myself: I am a graduate of East Carolina University, I live in Clayton, NC and I have been happily married to my husband for 7 years now. We have a little girl who is 15 months old named Savannah. I have always had a passion for teaching and I truly enjoy coming to school every day ready to teach my students. I look forward to a new school year and can't wait to build relationships with all of you!
