Erin Ellinger

mySci Facilitator

Erin brings over a decade of K-12 education experience to the mySci team and currently works as a professional development facilitator and curriculum editor. She began her career teaching kindergarten through 8th grade students in Chicago and moved from first year teacher to academic dean in her time there. Working with grade level and department teams to focus student learning motivated her to shift into instructional coaching, professional development design and school leadership. 

In 2016, Erin moved to St. Louis and began a leadership role in a 6th through 12th grade school. As director of curriculum and instruction, she learned even more about the endless potential of both students and teachers. It was there that she first coached teachers through their use of mySci and joined the mySci team in 2019. In facilitating professional development, Erin gets to share the excitement of teachers as they prepare to introduce their students to this dynamic curriculum.

Erin holds a bachelor’s degree from Cornell College and master’s degrees in teaching and education administration from Dominican University. In her free time, she explores St. Louis area parks with her two young children.
