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 7th 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 recently moved to Clayton, NC and I have been happily married to my husband for 5 years now. 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 meeting new faces! See you all in August! :)
