Hi there! My name is Erica Hoyt, and I am the Library and Information Technology Educator at Prestonwood Elementary! I have been in education for 11 years; 7 years as a classroom teacher and 4 as a LITE. I was born and raised in RISD, and love that I get to teach in the same district that grew me. I was honored with the recognition of STARS Teacher in 2019, as well as Elementary Teacher of the Year. I am mom to a precious one year old, and love spending my time with her and my husband! My favorite places I love to be are a coffee shop, a book store, or in a National Park!
I believe in the power of libraries, and what they can bring to a school community. I am a champion of books, an advocate for creative mindsets, and passionate about creating a space where students are not afraid to try something new. My goal is to empower our PWE Panthers to be: Readers, Thinkers, Creators, Problem-Solvers, Wonderers, Challengers, Risk-Takers, and Empathetic beings. I am beyond thankful I get to teach and support every single student here at Prestonwood Elementary!
