About Erica M Dean

Because of the struggles she faced as a beginning teacher, Erica M Dean is an advocate for teacher mentorship before and during one's career as a teacher. She often testifies to the fact that it was both prayer and seasoned staff that helped her to adjust to life in the classroom, noting that that she sought their assistance and advice on a daily basis, and that support helped her grow her much-talked about "teacher legs." In addition, Ms. Dean has a special interest in visiting local college campuses to talk with aspiring teachers as they prepare for the teaching profession. A proud graduate of the Detroit Public Schools System, Ms. Dean has served DPS for 14 years as classroom teacher, literacy coach, and instructional specialist. She is a proud alumna of Wayne State University (BA '00 & M.Ed '04) who went on to earn the State of Michigan Educational Technology Teaching Endorsement via coursework taken at the University of Michigan-Dearborn campus, and at the time of this writing has completed degree coursework in Educational Leadership and the requirements for the State of Michigan K12 School Administration Certificate through Marygrove College (M.A. '15). When not engaged in the Education community, Ms. Dean enjoys being with family, her cat, friends, church family of New Providence Baptist Church of Detroit and sorors of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated. She loves dining out, traveling, and a little down time with her beloved Xbox 360 and favorite game, Madden Football.show more
