CCSD is pleased to welcome Erica Detty: Mrs Detty will teach 5th and 6th grade Math. She earned her Bachelor's Degree from Ohio University and comes to our district with three years of teaching experience. She previously taught for Vinton County Schools.
She is married to her high school sweetheart (both are Cavalier Alumni), 22 years ago. Phil and Erica have two children who currently attend Chillicothe City Schools: Megan is 13 and active in the band program; and Matt is 17, and keeps them busy with multiple sports (soccer, football, and basketball). She enjoys reading and taking care of the four rescue dogs: they require significant lap time.
Mrs. Detty began her studies at Ohio University late in life, she was unsure of her path, but decided to pursue education; because she realized how much she loved math she felt that she could help remove the negative stigmas kids fight when they are trying to learn math skills. Mrs. Detty strives to do this with partner and/or small group activities that stretch students and make them ask and answer questions. She wants students to take risks, make mistakes, ask questions, explore ideas, and develop into mathematicians.
It's great to welcome you home to CavalierNation Mrs. Detty!
