My name is Erica Kuras, and I will be your child’s teacher this year. This is my 19th year of teaching. I'm very excited to be teaching second grade at Como Park.  I graduated from Buffalo State in 1999 with my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. In 2002, I received my master's degree.
            I live in Lancaster. So you may see me eating ice cream at Frosty's, rollerblading at Westwood, or attending fun events in the village. I have a son who attends Lancaster Middle School. He keeps me busy because I'm constantly driving him to all of his soccer and hockey practices and games.

            I enjoy reading books. I especially enjoy mysteries and realistic fiction. The favorite part of my day is when my son and I read together at bedtime. I always cherished that time with my parents when I was a child, so I love carrying on the tradition.  My newest hobby is gardening.  I love seeing the various flowers sprout throughout the year.
