About Me

Hey there, I’m Erica!

Reading Educator, Entrepreneur, Wife & Dog mom

I’m currently teaching Title I Reading at a small, rural school in Missouri. We are on a 4-day week schedule, so most Mondays I’m running around town doing errands or working on my kids wooden toy business, Lindquist Lane.

My husband and I have the two cutest dogs around. Elbert and Whitney are named after 14ers because JT (the hubs) climbs them and is super outdoorsy! I put a new bandana on them for each holiday… I’m that lady!

No kiddos yet for us, but I’m excited for when that time comes. Kids truly bring so much joy into my life at school and make me smile each day. I have a great school with wonderful students and colleagues. I’m grateful they support me in all my endeavors and listen to all my ideas!

A Little bit more about me…

I love lots of things and am a super passionate person.

I love Jesus! He is my rock and my anchor!

I’m the girl that played school growing up, and I love so many of the nostalgic things my small town school still does!

I think life is a gift and I strive to think outside the box!

I live in Missouri, and the weather is all over the place!

My husband, JT, and my two doggies are the brightest things in my life! So grateful for the family the Lord has blessed me with!
