Mrs. Fenton - Jr. High ELA

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Erin Fenton

After graduating from Red Hill High School in 1993, I continued my academic and basketball career at Lincoln Trail College and then the University of Illinois at Springfield. I graduated from UIS in 1998 with a Bachelors in History, Minor in English, and my teaching degree. In 2003, I obtained my Master's in Teaching and Leadership from UIS.

I began my teaching career at WSGS in 1999 and taught for seven years before taking a break to own and operate the Edwards County Times Advocate newspaper. In my time away from the classroom, I also worked as the Office Manager at Ingram-Meridith Funeral Home. I returned to the teaching profession at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.

I reside in West Salem with my husband, Harvey, and our daughter Gracie.
