My name is Erin Griep and I have been a special education teacher at McKinley Elementary since 2017. However, I have been teaching in Arlington since 2010 and come from Barcroft Elementary. I have taught K-2 Special Education, 2nd grade, 5th grade and 4th grade Special Education. I am originally from Hamilton, NJ where I lived with my parents and two sisters. I attended Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA where I received my dual Bachelor’s degrees in Elementary and Special Education. In 2015 I completed my Master’s degree in teaching from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I married my husband in the summer of 2016 and welcomed my son, James, in April 2017. As a Division 1 track and field athlete in college, I love sports and being outside. My family and I enjoy camping, hiking, bike-riding and sitting by the fire pit.
