    I have heard many students wonder, "What does Mrs. Erhart do when she is not in school?"  Well, I assure you, I am a regular person, just like the rest of you!  The best answer would be that it depends on the weather!  I love being outdoors, even when it is cold, so I can enjoy a few of my favorite outdoor things: camping, hiking, fishing (both fly and spinner), and seeing animals!  When I am indoors, you can find me curled up reading a book (sci-fi and historical fictions are my favorite) or playing an exciting board game with family and friends.  There are even times when I jump on the computer to pay a video game with my husband or friends online (I know, shocking!).
    All my life I have wanted to be a teacher.  I started teaching infants and slowly moved up to teaching Pre-school, Pre-K, and then Kindergarten.  After I finished my Master's Degree, I was offered a job in 5th grade at Sacred Heart School (now it is Holy Savior Academy).  That is where I learned how much I LOVED fifth grade!  5th is BY FAR the BEST grade!  This will now be my 8th year teaching 5th grade and I still learn something new every year from my students.  I am still amazed at the inquisitive minds I meet every year and I am humbled by having the opportunity to be there as they grow into lifelong learners.  I look forward to our journey together this year! 
    Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns. I can be reached at nerhart@stmatthiasnj.org
