Faculty Friday: Erika Connelly

Erika Connelly joined Community School in 2008 and currently teaches Middle School P.E. and Middle School Enhancement and serves as Upper School girls' soccer coach, Middle School girls' basketball coach, and as an Outdoor Leadership Academy advisor.

Erika is a 2003 graduate of Community School and holds a BSBA in business management and psychology from University of Denver.

Erika appreciates the opportunity her varied roles provide to engage with students across many years of growth and development. "I work with students from sixth grade through to their graduation day, which is really fulfilling," she says. Also inspiring, she notes, are her fellow faculty members: "I get to work with the most amazing group of colleagues. I love working with them everyday."

When she's not on campus, you might find Erika kayaking and rafting on local rivers in the summer or backcountry skiing in the winter.
