Hello! My name is Erica Shadwell Mitchell and I am the EL teacher at Gentry Middle School! This is my 1st year at Gentry, my 18th year in Columbia Public Schools, and my 24th year of teaching overall! Time flies when you are having fun!
I've lived in Columbia now for 20 years. I have 3 daughters, two of which graduated from CPS and my youngest daughter is a senior this year. My seven year old step son is also a proud student of Columbia Public Schools. My husband and I stay busy with travel, kids' sports, our pets, and gardening. Never a dull moment for us!
I'm elated to be part of the Gentry family and look forward to working with all my students and families!
