ERICA MARTIN

My name is Erica and I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with your students. I am a NYC teacher turned “homeschooling” mom to 3 children ages 3, 6 and 13.

I began my career in education teaching grades K-12 at a NYC private school. I then decided to pursue my master’s degree in secondary education and social studies. Upon receiving my masters I went on to teach U.S. History, AP U.S. History, Global History, and Government at a NYC public high school and later at a Catholic high school. 

My family, like many families, transitioned to homeschooling in March 2020 and will continue to homeschool through the 2021-2022 school year. 

I love homeschooling because I am able to witness the “lightbulb moments” and ensure that my children are becoming curious independent thinkers. 

This platform provides the unique opportunity to take a subject like history and integrate it into the passions of our everyday life. We can learn history through gardening, cooking, music all while learning a new skill! I am so excited to extend the opportunity to experience history with the students here on Inspired Virtual!
