Erin Ranic

Art Teacher


I am a wife and a mother to three girls. I’ve been the art teacher for one year at SSPP. Previously I was the Phys Ed teacher at St Aloysius. I have also taught Pre-K and worked with Special Needs students. I love hiking, and teaching fitness classes like Zumba, Kettlebell and other activities. I truly enjoy working with the students and encouraging their creativity and self expression. My goal is to support every student and create an open work environment.

My Most Memorable Classroom Moment(s)

I’ve made many connections, but what stands out is artwork dedicated for just me. Also as a PE teacher, I heard from students how fun gym class was and they can’t wait for next time. More specifically, a student attributed my training to their success in a sport. They realized all the conditioning we did prepared them for their game, and came out on top!

My Hobbies Outside Of School

I love hiking, teaching fitness classes, and biking. I used to work at Walt Disney World in college, and I love taking my family there every year. I have a dog, Brinkley, and two birds, Sunny and Charlotte. I love maps, which is different. I could stare at a map all day, and map out different routes for my travels. I’m a cheer mom as all three of my daughters do competitive cheer.

My Degrees/Certifications

Bachelor’s of Science in Criminal Justice. Fitness certification in Zumba, Zumba Kids, Strong, boot camp, and kettlebell.
