January Staff Spotlight

Mr. Erik Carey

Mr. Carey has an exceptional rapport with his students which he starts to form at an early age.  He coaches rec sports and often visits the lunch room during his prep periods to get to know the younger students.  He is a natural at gaining the admiration and trust of all students he comes in contact with as well as the parents.  He often mentors students who have difficulty in the main stream of classes and routine, bringing them to a successful completion to the year and promotion from the 8th grade.

As an 8th grade teacher here at CCS, he takes his teaching to a higher level by organizing field trips for his students to experience hands on, real life experiences of what he is teaching in the classroom.  In the fall he takes his students to Boston for a weekend trip to see and learn about the various historical monuments there.   He offers students to join him on his overnight trip to the Norlands Living Center which allows the children to reenact what life was like in the 1600's.  His big trip, which students look forward to for many years prior to entering the 8th grade, is his trip to Washington DC.  This is a week long trip for the students with organized stops along the way to some historical towns.  

During his own time he organizes and DJ's dances for the 6-8 students.  He also works to help the PTO's by volunteering to chaperone and DJ their dances as well.  

All of this comes to light each time a former student returns years later to visit him just to share their own success story.  

With this said, Mr. Carey is most certainly a teacher who deserves his time in the “Spot Light.”
