Mr. Erik D. Harshman
Welcome to the webpage of Mr. Harshman!
I am a writer and educator from St. Louis, Missouri.
I received my BA in Creative Writing (with a minor in Film) from the Santa Fe University of Art & Design, my MAT (with emphasis in English) from Webster University and am currently working on my MA in English from UMSL.
I have taught English at the high school level at St. Louis Public Schools for the last thirteen years, where I taught everything from British Literature (seniors) to College Summit; my specialty was American Literature (juniors) and AP Senior Literature (for which my students received dual credit through UMSL). Additionally, I am an adjunct professor at St. Louis Community College - Meramec and have enjoyed witnessing immense growth and progress in my students' writing for the last ten years.
This is my second year teaching at Hazelwood East High School.
For the 2021-22 school year I am teaching Creative Writing and AP Literature and Composition (dual-credit through St. Louis Community College).
