Mrs. Erica Lemasters
Erica earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She has taught at multiple preschools and a Montessori school, has worked as a one-on-one resource specialist in a public school, and has substituted and taught for multiple grade levels from kindergarten through 12th grade (in public and independent schools). Erica also holds multiple yoga teaching certifications and has taught Mommy and Me Yoga, Kids Yoga, and Hot Yoga to adults at a studio and has taught Power Vinyasa Yoga at multiple colleges to students, faculty, and staff.
Erica began working at James River as a substitute teacher in January 2020, shifting in August 2020 to the role of Substitute Coordinator. On a daily basis during that time, she also worked with individual students and small groups to provide supplemental instruction, provided coverage breaks for teachers, and enjoyed getting to know the parents and students during morning and afternoon carpool.
Erica is especially excited to be one of the kindergarten teachers as she has the utmost respect for the faculty and staff here at James River and feels truly blessed to be part of this team. She believes every child deserves the love, care, and special one-on-one attention everyone at James River gives to all students each and every day.
In her spare time, she loves reading to her two children (who attend JRDS), playing board games with her family, finding shells at the beach, practicing yoga and meditation, drinking coffee, and eating anything chocolate!
