About Me

My name is Ericka Godwin and this is my third year teaching! I went to Longwood University for my Bachelor's of Science in Liberal Arts: Elementary and Middle School Education and my Master's of Science in Special Education. I taught 6th grade English and Science with Buckingham County Public Schools for my first year of teaching. This is my second year with Newport News Public Schools working at Hines Middle School as an 8th grade English teacher. 


A few fun facts about me include: 

1. From Smithfield, VA 

2. Own a puppy named Aladdin

3. Absolutely love pizza (Domino's to be exact)
