Hi, my name is Erika Lincoln and I am Sophmore at Rhode Island College. I am majoring in Elementary Education and specializing in English. I live in East Providence, Rhode Island and I graduated from East Providence High School in 2013. This summer I spent most of my time with my group of high school friends since during the school year they're all away at college and I don't get to see them much. I also spent a lot of my summer with my niece, Chloe, because she is my little baby-girl and she is so much fun to be around. In my spare time I babysit a 5 year-old, Olivia, and a 9 year-old, Matt. I also spend a lot of time with my pitbull Sammie, because I'm a little obsessed with her. Some of my favorite things to do are spend time with my big Italian family, as well as shopping (my addiction), and listening to music; some of my favorite artists include John Mayer, Drake, and Jhene Aiko. I am very excited for FNED 346 this fall. I am interested to get into schools and start working hands on with children and really see first-hand what I want to be doing as a career for the rest of my life. So I can't wait to see how the semester goes!
