  "Mrs. Ervin is a highly qualified teacher in math and science.  Her expertise in these areas gives our students a firm foundation for high school.  She challenges her students to think and use their God  given abilities to challenge themselves.  Many graduates enter high school in honor classes for math and science."

  

I love being able to teach your children Math and Science.  I am excited to show the students how our God intelligently designed all of creation and makes all things work together in order that he may be glorified.  I desire for each young man or woman that walks through my classroom to leave the classroom with a new appreciation for all that is around them and a desire to please God in every decision they make.  
In addition to teaching 7th & 8th Grade Math and Science, I also teach 7th & 8th grade Art and Computers, 8th Bible, advanced math courses, and serve as the Student Council Advisor.
 
 
The school theme, Ask, Seek, Knock is taken from Matthew 7:7.  "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you."
