|Info||As a lifelong learner and collector of knowledge, Erin loves to pass that knowledge on. She teaches creative writing workshops to K-12 students (both stand alone and in the classroom) and has taught university and community writing classes. She’s helped administer arts appreciation contests and develop curriculum including creating a model for a bilingual poetry contest that now serves several Arizona high schools. As a graduate student, Erin played a key role in establishing a community writing program that trains university students to teach creative writing and provides workshops to dozens of K-8 schools. Erin’s work in education has taught her that the next generation needs a solid foundation and that both our educators and neighborhood schools deserve the full support of the State of Texas. |
Erin is a published author, has a degree in nonfiction writing, and is a powerful public speaker. She loves using the power of storytelling to engage folks in political issues and motivate them to action. Democrats like to say that we have facts on our side, but people vote with their hearts, not their heads. Erin's storytelling skills will help her reach those hearts, build support for fact-based policy, expand the Democratic base, and engage more Texans in the democratic process.
