Mrs. Erica Toney
Greetings! My name is Mrs. Toney and I am SO excited to be a part of the Wilder 5th Grade team! Most importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher. It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to get to know ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I was born and raised in State College, PA (home of Penn State and the Nittany Lions). A few years after I graduated high school, I joined the Army. I spent 20 wonderful years serving our great country and retired in 1997. I was stationed in El Paso, TX, Washington, DC, Augusta, GA, Stuttgart, Germany, West Point, NY, and San Antonio, TX.
I have been teaching for 17 years. My first 6 years was in special education, followed by 2 years in 1st grade, and 9 years in 5th grade. I love 5th grade because I know just where you’re coming from and exactly where you need to go. My teaching experience will really help me challenge you to reach for the stars this year.
I am married to a wonderful man, Byron Toney, who is an X-ray technologist. We have 3 grown children who no longer live at home. (Yes, I am an empty-nester). I am a huge football fan and love my Pittsburgh Steelers (sorry Cowboy fans). I also love the San Antonio Spurs. I have 3 cats and two birds.
I can't wait to watch you learn and grow this year. It's going to be an AMAZING year!
