5th Grade ELA
Erika Walther has worked for Baltimore City Public Schools since 2012. While working as a case manager for youth in the juvenile justice system, Erika realized that relationships between students and their school communities were a major indicator for student success. Her conversations with young people working to escape the school-to-prison pipeline inspired her to pursue a career as an educator. Erika joined Urban Teachers in 2013 and never looked back. She currently teaches fifth grade Language Arts and is also a Multi-Classroom Lead, supporting other Language Arts teachers in her building.
