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 8th 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 6 years now. We also recently had our first daughter, 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!
2020-2021 School Year
I hope you all had a great Summer and are ready for a wonderful year together!
