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 enjoyed success as an adjunct professor at St. Louis Community College - Meramec for the last ten years. - Prof. Harshman

This is my first year teaching at Hazelwood East High School.

For the 2020-21 school year I am teaching ELA1 (Freshman), ELA1 Honors, Reading & Writing Workshop and Creative Writing.
